Our mission is to educate and empower to green our lives, communities, Israel and the Earth. "Think of a desert: It looks barren -- but a little bit of water completely changes everything. That's a nice metaphor for what we are trying to do -- be that little bit of change, the one drop of water that makes all the difference. " ~ Rabbi Michael Cohen, co-founder of Aytzim: Ecological Judaism
Our members, volunteers and leaders come from across the political and religious spectra. We care deeply about Judaism and the Earth, and believe in both education and action.
What we do: Founded in 2001 and incorporated as a 501(c)3 nonprofit in 2006, today Aytzim hosts five projects:
* EcoJews (aka EcoJews of the Bay) runs Jewish-environmental social activities in the San Francisco Bay Area.
* Green Zionist Alliance: The Grassroots Campaign for a Sustainable Israel, works to protect and educate about the environment of Israel and the Middle East.
* Jewcology: Home of the Jewish Environmental Movement
* Jews of the Earth: Leads regional advocacy and environmental action activities in the greater Washington D.C. area.
