    Hazon - What’s Jewish About the Environment
    Hazon is the largest faith-based environmental organization in the U.S. and is building a movement that strengthens Jewish life and contributes to a more environmentally sustainable world for all. As the Jewish lab for sustainability, Hazon effects change through immersive experiences and inspires individuals and communities to make specific commitments to change with a particular focus on food systems.

As we move through the days and possibly weeks ahead, Federation has implemented a system for any member of the community to receive or provide a helping hand.


Whether you need a delivery of a meal, would appreciate a weekly check-in call, or might enjoy a "virtual friendly visit," we have community volunteers who are able and ready to help. If you don't need help but are willing and able to volunteer to help someone else, we need you, too! Let's stay healthy and safe together!
