Too frequently we feel disempowered in the face of the climate crisis. That’s understandable – but it’s not helpful. The Brit Hazon is important because it lets each one of us genuinely be part of the solution – and increase our positive impact as each year goes by.
There are three things we all need to do. And we’re asking you to join us in committing to them.
These are the three things. In each case, what we need to do – and why we need to do it.
Give time and money to those prioritizing this work, like Hazon.
If you have already supported Hazon, thank you. If you want to give a gift now, ideally a monthly gift. As you think about the impact you want to have in the world, please plan to give more time and money to us and others doing this work.
Raise your voice to create real and lasting change in your communities.
Speak up in public spaces, and in your synagogue, camp, school, Hillel, Federation, place of work – and say, “We should commit to reducing our environmental impact, educating about these issues, and advocating for change.” For support on this, please join the Hazon Seal of Sustainability.
Check out these suggestions for ways to make progress on your Brit Hazon.
