LED Lighting Conversion Project


The CBE Adamah Committee invites you to participate in an effort with long-term benefits for the congregation and the earth. Currently we burn 65 incandescent bulbs in the sanctuary and community building, adding up to more than 2900 watts of electricity. These lights are not always on, but they burn out frequently and require significant maintenance effort -- especially the units in the high chandeliers.


By changing these incandescent bulbs to efficient long-life LEDs, we can control maintenance expenses and reduce our lighting power demand by 85% -- whether from fossil fuels, water, wind, or photovoltaic sources. We plan to replace the bulbs incrementally over the next year, so we do not waste usable existing units. The total cost of this project will be about $500.


If every member chips in for one or two bulbs,

together we can make a real difference.


  • $4 provides a candle bulb for the sanctuary walls and menorahs.

  • $5 provides a reflector bulb for the community room ceiling lights.

  • $7 provides a globe for the sanctuary chandeliers.

  • $10 provides a candle bulb for the sanctuary exterior lanterns.

  • $12 provides a spotlight for the art display track lighting.
