    Dear Author,
    The information you present is on a topic very close to my heart.  My synagogue community is working together with other faith communities to ensure our buildings meet a national Green standard in the U.S.A..  It would have been much more accessible if you had written in prose rather than bullet points.  If you want to keep the bullet points, it would make more sense to give each point the same exact format when possible.  Also, a quick grammar check is essential.  As a school teacher, I’m more than happy to proof read for you! Great information!
