-Hazon Board Member

“I am excited to participate in The 2020 Vision Rides for two primary reasons. First, it’s a wonderful opportunity to get my 5 year old daughter involved in Tikkun Olam. Second, I genuinely believe that Hazon’s commitment to sustainability can be a game changer for the Jewish world.”

“Sustainability has always been deep inside of me – one of my earliest memories is turning the water off while my parents brushed their teeth. I simply could not bear hearing and seeing them waste the water. Over the years this passion for conservation has taken on many forms – solo backing in the mountains, designing a sustainability rating system for cities, and getting multiple degrees in environmental management. Most importantly, my journey has taught me that visceral experiences of nature are critical for the soul.

In 2012 I connected with Hazon through my work in the sustainability field and my passion for biking. That year my partner, my father and I participated in the NYC ride. It was a magical weekend! In 2013 and 2014 I participated in and then chaired the Bay Area ride. Each ride was unique and wonderful! The friendships and connections ultimately are the best gifts I got from Hazon.

Today, I live in rural Utah and work as a professor of environmental planning. My teaching and research is all about the impacts of climate change and ways that proactive planning and design can build a better future world. My mission is to get my young kids to play in the natural world and thus develop their own love for sustainability efforts.

I am excited to participate in The 2020 Vision Rides for two primary reasons. First, it’s a wonderful opportunity to get my 5 year old daughter involved in Tikkun Olam. Second, I genuinely believe that Hazon’s commitment to sustainability can be a game changer for the Jewish world.”

“For the past 12 years I’ve combined my love of bicycling with fundraising and helping others. Much of that came to a halt this summer, so I’m participating virtually. I’ve missed the Hazon Ride, and the beautiful Berkshires. I love knowing that I’ve joined others in contributing to the work done by Hazon.”

“For the past 12 years I’ve combined my love of bicycling with fundraising and helping others. I’ve biked the 5 Boro Bike Tour a few times, but usually marshal, helping thousands negotiate the streets of NYC. I marshal many other rides as well. I took a course to teach people of all ages how to ride a bicycle, so they can get in on the fun. And I do a lot of rides that involve raising anywhere from the registration fee to thousands of dollars for different causes. When I’m not bicycling I have given kayak support for swimmers, and medical care for runners and triathletes.

This Summer much of that came to a shuddering halt. Unfortunately the needs haven’t disappeared. So I’ve participated in some virtual events. Here I am with my daughter and friend. We all participate in a fund raiser for children with cancer and other serious medical conditions. Along with two others, we did what will be my last ride of the Summer, since I’m having surgery (which I hope will be the last for an issue which is the result of getting doored 6 years ago!).

I’ve missed the Hazon Ride, and the beautiful Berkshires. I love knowing that I’ve joined others in contributing to the work done by Hazon.”
