The Cause: Why We Ride

Climate change, pollution, and the depletion of the world’s finite natural resources are doing real damage to the planet & to our future. The Hazon Ride:

  • Has raised money for projects that are furthering Jewish Outdoor, Food & Environmental Education (JOFEE) – including Teva & Adamah
  • Allows us to give away more than $50,000 in annual scholarships for immersive retreats at Isabella Freedman
  • Provides vital support and seed money for new initiatives like the Hazon Seal of Sustainability
  • Has significantly increased the number of Jewish people who are environmentally aware and active
  • Has been a positive model for building inclusive, cross-denominational Jewish communities
  • Continues to serve as an entry point to organized Jewish life for those who are excited about biking, sustainability, the environment, and/or the outdoors

A portion of funds raised also supports partner institutions, who are raising money to support their own projects in line with Hazon’s mission.
