Jewish teen group holds native plant sale at B’nai El Congregation

Just in time for Mother’s Day, the Jewish Environmental Initiative (JEI) and its teen group are sponsoring a native plant sale and rain barrel raffle. The sale will take place at B’nai El Congregation and the Saul Mirowitz Day School-Reform Jewish Academy, 11411 S. Outer 40 Drive, from noon to 2 p.m. Sunday, May 1. The event is a benefit for the JEI Teen Group, a committee of the Jewish Community Relations Council that engages in environmental activities and projects.

The sale will include a variety of flowers, which people can both pre-order or purchase directly at the sale. There will be an opportunity to learn about rain barrels and to enter a raffle to win a rain barrel. Rain barrels collect rainwater and reduce water bills, as collected rainwater can be used to water a garden and lawn. The JEI Teen Group invites the community to support the native plant and rain barrel sale. A flyer/pre-order form is available online at For more information, contact Gail Wechsler at [email protected] or 314-442-3894.
