Mission

We are reaching a tipping point in terms of environmental awareness. Not only did the beginning of 2007 see the unveiling of the report by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change but 2006 was the year of The Omnivore's Dilemma and Fast Food Nation the movie. This conversation has only begun moving into the Jewish community and the bulk of Hazon's work centers around the intersection of these issues as they intersect a traditional set of Jewish concerns around the health and sustainability of the Jewish community. On one hand, Hazon builds community, develops leadership and builds innovative partnerships around contemporary issues which affect the world as a whole, and on the other hand engages people within a pluralistic but distinctly Jewish context involving prayer, text, tzedakah and practice. Between these two tensions, Hazon ultimately reframes what it means to be Jewish in the 21st century.

 

Hazon creates healthy and sustainable communities in the Jewish world and beyond.
We accomplish this in three ways:
