You’re not required to complete the task, but neither can you desist from it.

The Brit Hazon
The word brit means “covenant.” (And the word hazon means “vision.”)
The Brit Hazon is our opportunity to make a personal commitment to do better – to take a stand and take action – as we manifest our vision of a more sustainable and equitable world for all. We are in a global climate crisis and Jewish tradition compels us to respond. We must envision the world we wish to create and we must see ourselves as part of the solution.
We invite you to participate in the Brit Hazon and commit to one of the following behavior changes for a six-week period. Click on the commitments below to read more about them. When you decide on the commitment you want to make, select “actions to [commitment]” for a list of specific actions you can take for the next six weeks to achieve it. At that point, you’ll select 1-3 actions and commit to the Brit Hazon. If after seeing the actions for a particular commitment you decide you want to choose a different commitment, just come back to this page. Join a growing community of people taking action to create a healthier and more sustainable world for all!
