Nigel Savage, Hazon’s founder and CEO, will speak at services at Congregation B’nai Israel in Millburn on Saturday, June 12, at 9:30 a.m. He will give the d’var Torah during services, and after kiddush he will lead a discussion on “Shmitah and Jewish Sustainability.”
Hazon, the largest faith-based environmental organization in the United States, is building a movement to strengthen Jewish life and contribute to a more environmentally sustainable world for all. Hazon uses immersive experiences to inspire people and communities to make specific commitments to change, with a particular focus on food systems.
Hazon effects change in three ways: inspiring and activating people through immersive Jewish, Outdoor, Food, Farming & Environmental Education (JOFEE) experiences ; educating and supporting JOFEE leaders; and building the field by catalyzing and convening Jewish leaders, organizations, and individuals to make specific commitments to change — with a particular focus on food systems, because food is both central to Jewish life and to our impact in the world.
