Each fall, hundreds of millions of monarch butterflies migrate from the US and Canada to mountains in central Mexico where they wait out the winter until conditions favor a return flight in the spring. Monarch friendly gardens are places that provide resources necessary for monarchs to produce successive generations and sustain their migration. Without milkweeds throughout their spring and summer breeding areas in North America, monarchs would not be able to produce the successive generations that culminate in the migration each fall. The Northwest Suburban Interfaith Council, under the leadership of Bruce Glickson from Temple Chai, has helped establish Monarch friendly gardens at many of our membership congregations. You can help too as an individual to establish Monarch Waystations where you live. More information is available at monarchwatch.org or you can contact us at email@example.com.

The Interfaith Council is a not-for-profit organization with 10 member congregations located in Arlington Heights, Buffalo Grove, Wheeling, Long Grove and Prospect Heights (all in Illinois).
The Interfaith council was founded in 1990 as a direct response to an incident of anti-Semitic graffiti painted on the Northwest Suburban Jewish Community Center. The clergy of the area joined together to condemn the vandalism caused by hate and ignorance.
