The Hazon Seal of Sustainability: Creating healthier, more equitable, and more sustainable Jewish communities through education, action, and advocacy.
The Hazon Seal is an annual program providing guidance and support to advance climate and sustainability related projects in your Jewish institution, organization, or community. Rooted in Jewish tradition, participation in the Hazon Seal program is an opportunity to link Jewish values to substantive action against climate change while building a healthier and more sustainable world for all!
Receiving the Hazon Seal of Sustainability means that you (as a community, congregation or organization) have committed to and taken action toward significant greening initiatives or projects. We offer not only auditing tools to help establish your baseline but resources and guidance to support you in reaching your goals.
We invite your organization to journey forward with help from the Hazon Seal staff. We recommend 2-3 projects or initiatives each year to keep your institutions or community moving forward.
For more information on how to get involved check out the Hazon Seal Portal, take a look at our application, or download our brochure.
- After you are accepted into the program and have paid your program fee (sliding scale between $180-$3600), we ask that your board chair or executive director submit our form of intent. Buy-in from organizational leadership is so important in supporting your ongoing efforts – we like to make sure everyone is on board!
- Once the paperwork is out of the way, schedule a welcome call with our team. We’ll go over all the details you need to know about completing the initial audits, setting goals, and how to get started!
- Next, fill out an online form detailing the projects you hope to complete over the next 12 months. At the end of the year, we’ll send those goals back to you to see how you did!
- Along the way, we have hundreds of resources to help you reach your goals. From curricula to project ideas, from consultation calls* to site visits and everything in between, we have the tools to help you succeed!
*annual fees cover one consultation call for infrastructure and one consultation call for programming – additional consultation calls are charged at a rate of $50/ call**
**for institutions paying annual fees of $1500+ there is no additional charge for consulting
