It’s a mystery — we lost our Aytzim facebook page and all our facebook friends. So we will be sending out new invites to like our page. In case you have forgotten, we are all about the environment — saving our world. And these days, it has become more important than ever.
Aytzim is the umbrella organization of: Green Zionist Alliance, Jewcology.org, EcoJews, and Shomrei Breishit: Rabbis and Cantors for the Earth.
Aytzim means “trees” and here’s a little about the other organizations in our product grove:
Green Zionist Alliance—Since its founding in 2001, the Green Zionist Alliance has successfully worked for the declaration of new nature preserves, the planting of millions of trees, and the construction of hundreds of miles of bike trails. It is also the first and only organization on the environment to ever participate in the World Zionist Congress.
Jewcology.org incorporates collaboration from a wide range of Jewish environmental leaders and organizations worldwide. This project was funded by the ROI Innovation Fund.
The long-term goal is to build a multi-denominational, multi-generational, regionally diverse community of Jewish environmental activists, who are learning from one another and from an expanding set of Jewish-environmental resources, how to educate their communities about our Jewish responsibility to protect the environment.
EcoJews works in the San Francisco Bay Area to empower Jewish organizations to go green(er). EcoJews addresses sustainability issues from a Jewish ethical standpoint and through environmental consulting.
They also highlight environmental work in Israel, celebrate holidays such as Tu B`shvat and enjoy outdoor activities such as nature walks and native plant restoration.
In a partnership with Green Faith, Shomrei Breshit is an international, multi-denominational network of rabbis and cantors providing a Jewish voice on climate change and environmental justice.
So please be our friends and keep up with everything our organizations are doing to help our world and all its people. And remember that Jewcology.org is the place to post information about your organization. You can also share information about your events.
