About Us

We create healthier and more sustainable communities in the Jewish world and beyond.

Programs: 

Hazon’s New York Ride is held over 4 days during Labor Day weekend in the New York area and draws over 300 participants from across the country. Rider fundraising supports the work of Hazon and its major partners. A series of smaller grants are allocated to projects in the Jewish community.

The Arava Institute & Hazon Israel Ride is held annually over 7 days in the Fall. The Israel Ride is a 200-300 mile journey that provides participants the opportunity to experience the beauty and challenges of the Israeli landscape in a whole new way.

Retreats at Isabella Freedman take place throughout the year. Click here for a full list of upcoming retreats.

The Hazon Food Conference brings together foodies, educators, rabbis, farmers, nutritionists, chefs, food writers, and families who share a passion for learning about and celebrating food.

The Adamah Fellowship is a three-month leadership training program for Jewish young adults in their 20s that integrates organic farming, sustainable living, Jewish learning, community building and contemplative spiritual practice.

Teva is a transformative experience twice over: first, for the middle-school students who come for four days at a time to connect Jewish tradition and ecological stewardship; and secondly, for the 20-somethings (and a few 30-somethings) who live at Teva for 10 weeks at a time, teaching the intensive Teva programs.

Why Work For Us?: 

Hazon works to create healthier and more sustainable communities in the Jewish world and beyond. We’re the largest dedicated environmental organization in the American Jewish community. In aggregate we’re seeking to shift the nature of what it means to be Jewish in the 21st century – enabling and encouraging Jewish people to have an impact in the world and transforming Jewish life in the process. We are based in New York City and the Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center in Falls Village CT. We also have offices in Denver, Boulder, and Detroit.
