Rabbinical Council

The Hazon Rabbinical Council is a mutually beneficial and supportive avenue for Hazon to help catalyze a broad spectrum of religious leaders to use Hazon as a portal for education, action and advocacy, helping them be stronger leaders in areas of environmental sustainability and the Jewish tradition which compels us to action.
