Commitments Made
Brit Community Groups

The climate crisis is the moral imperative of our time. We call on you to act!

The word brit means “covenant.” (And the word hazon means “vision.”)

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.

Make a change in your own behavior.

Not because it’s enough, but it’s the minimum we each need to do to look at ourselves in the mirror – or face the generations yet to come. 

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.
