Hazon’s goal is to transform Jewish life so that by September 2015 – at the end of the next shmita (sabbatical) year in the Jewish tradition, – communities are clearly and demonstrably weaving commitments to sustainability into the fabric of Jewish life in this country and around the world.
Hazon works to create a healthier and more sustainable Jewish community and a healthier and more sustainable world for all. Its mission is to affect change by direct human impact of their programs, by supporting the American Jewish environment movement and the Israeli environmental movement, and through thought-leadership (writing, speaking, teaching, campaigning).
The values that underpin Hazon’s programs are a strong commitment to inclusive community, a strong commitment to volunteer involvement and leadership development, multi-generationality, being Jewishly serious and deeply engaged with the world around. Hazon believes in reaching people where they are and not where we might like them to be.
