Rabbi Joel Mosbacher had just finished the morning's Shabbat service when he got an urgent message: Rabbis were needed at New York's Kennedy Airport. People were being detained under President Donald Trump's sharp travel restrictions on refugees. Would he come pray?
Some pray in churches, mosques and synagogues. Others aren't religious, serving the community by providing housing or education. However, the leaders of more than 100 religious and community organizations in the Washington area share one interest: saving money on electricity to better serve their communities.
