Champions of Change
Rabbi Marc Soloway serves as the spiritual leader of Congregation Bonai Shalom in Boulder, Colorado and is president of Haver, Boulder’s Rabbinic Fellowship. He chairs the Rabbinic Advisory Board for Hazon, a leading faith-based environmental organization in the United States and is also on the national board, and has co-chaired two national Jewish food conferences. Marc also serves on the board of Ramah in the Rockies, a Jewish Outdoor Adventure camp, with a mission of sustainability. In his Jewish community, Marc has been central to the creation of an interfaith Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program and the development of community farming. Marc’s synagogue was the first to be a zero waste facility, supports local food initiative with a mission to produce much of the food served, and powers its ner tamid (eternal light above the ark in the sanctuary) through a solar panel, as a symbol of sustainable spirituality.
