Thank you for visiting Hazon’s page for rabbis and spiritual leaders! Hazon is the largest Jewish environmental organization in North America and has been guiding leaders and institutions to think more critically about their food choices and their impact on the environment for nearly 20 years. As the the Jewish Lab for Sustainability, Hazon’s work has never been more relevant.
We’re in a global environmental crisis and we believe that Jewish tradition compels us to respond. Hazon is building a movement of rabbis and spiritual leaders that strengthen Jewish life & contribute to a more environmentally sustainable world for all.
More than ever, we look to you as the spiritual gate-keepers of our generation, to join our movement, become a member of the Rabbinical Council, consider how you might engage in this discussion for the generation. As the current Generation – Z takes the streets, as young people across the world lead the environmental movement, not only do they look to us as faith leaders, but they call upon us to engage in the struggle considering the moral, historical and religious significance.
Like them, we look to you to help raise the banner of change as it relates to our food choices, our energy choices, our purchasing choices, we will provide the resources for you to be an ambassador of this work, and we will look to you as a resource to us in perpetuating and scaling the mission of Hazon. The time to act is now.
You have the power to lift up this conversation and to make sure that our communities are on the right side of history. If you’d like to schedule a time to connect, or if you’d like to be in touch about anything relating to the work of Hazon and our work with rabbis and spiritual leaders, please do not hesitate in reaching out.
Please also consider joining our rabbinical council, and becoming a monthly sustainer of Hazon.
With much love and respect,
Isaiah Rothstein, Hazon
