Jewish Climate Leadership Coalition

And who knows, you may have been chosen for just such a time as this. – Esther 4:14

What is the Jewish Climate Leadership Coalition?

The Jewish Climate Leadership Coalition is a network of Jewish community organizations who recognize the existential threat and moral urgency of climate change and commit to taking action.

Coalition members develop Climate Action Plans that outline the strategic priorities of your organization’s climate work by detailing actions taken to-date and setting goals for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the coming year.

As a member of the Coalition, you commit to the following:

  • Have your organization’s chief executive or rabbi sign the Coalition Founding Statement;
  • Designate a staff liaison to coordinate your climate action work;
  • Develop, implement, evaluate, and share your organizational Climate Action Plan annually.

To support Coalition members in this work, Hazon provides the following:

  • Resource guides, templates, and webinars on a multitude of climate solutions;
  • Coordinated networking and resource-sharing through Communities of Practice;
  • Hazon staff support through one-on-one consultation and staff office hours;
  • Promotion of Coalition members’ climate action goals and achievements;
  • Financial support in the form of interest-free loans and matching grants through Hazon’s Climate Action Fund.

Jewish organizations everywhere are invited to join the Coalition. There is no cost to membership.

Taking Action Together

Twenty major umbrella Jewish organizations have joined the Coalition as founding partners, demonstrating broad consensus that the Jewish community is ready and capable of taking collective climate action. These organizations are working to mobilize and support their networks in taking meaningful action around climate.

The potential power of our community’s collective action is immense. By working together, the impacts of individual organizations will be amplified, rippling throughout networks, neighborhoods, and beyond.

See the full list of Coalition members who have already committed to climate action.
