Last weekend, Hazon ran two incredibly successful events. 85 riders and 35 crew peddled for a healthy planet from Sonoma county to San Francisco for our 3rd annual Golden Gate Ride, and 15 participants ate their way across the holy land on the Israel Sustainable Food Tour. Check out photos from both of these phenomenal events on our Flickr page.
You too can join Hazon on one of our upcoming transformative experiences, whether a multi-day bike ride or a retreat at Isabella Freedman:
With Ilana Schatz, intro by Rabbi Marc Soloway. “The Dark Side of Chocolate” depicts the abuse of child labor in the African cocoa fields. The evening includes a screening of this 45-minute documentary, discussion, Jewish text study, and chocolate tasting with Ilana Schatz, the founding director of Fair Trade Judaica. Fair Trade chocolate will be available for purchase.
