Commitments Made
Brit Community Groups

Brit means “covenant” and Hazon means “vision” – the Brit Hazon is a personal commitment to creating a more sustainable world for all.

Between now and October 1 we’re asking Hazon Seal of Sustainability sites to join The Brit Hazon Challenge. The site with the most commitments to the Brit Hazon by October 1 will receive $1000 toward a future sustainability project.  Sign your community up below or email seal@hazon.org to participate.

Not a Seal Site but still want to participate? We encourage any Jewish institution or community to join the Hazon Seal of Sustainability – all new and existing sites are eligible to participate.

We know taking action is hard. As part of the Brit Hazon, we'll send you tips and tricks to get started.

We offer six guided paths, each with their own educational email journey. By signing the Brit Hazon, you are committing to learning and taking action to create a more environmentally sustainable world for all.

Follow these steps for your Brit Hazon:

1) Check out the toggles below to learn more about ways you can make a difference. 

2) Decide which area you’d like to take action on for the next six weeks and complete the sign up form (If you are participating as a part of a Brit Community Group, choose the group name from the dropdown when you submit your form.)

3) After submitting the form, you will receive six weekly emails to support you on your journey. You’ll gain access to new knowledge, thoughtful tips, recipes, and so much more along the way!
