Apr 22, 2020 - All Day
As we struggle through these difficult times, we look beyond the present crisis — Hazon is calling the Jewish community to #SoundtheCall on this 50th Earth Day.
This is a call to action — a call to change our behaviors, to think more equitably, to live more sustainably, to act more compassionately, to share the bounty of our planet with all who inhabit it and to protect our Earth from those who do it harm. Check out our resources supporting these efforts!
Why Hazon is doing this?
The shofar signifies a moment of change, a new wave of hope, a call to action, strength in the face of adversity. The shofar announces that living more sustainably on this planet is central to our Jewish life, not incidental to it.
We Sound the Call for:
a reminder that everything we have comes from this earth
a reminder of the ancient wisdom of Jewish tradition
a call of alarm for our global climate crisis
a call to look back on what we have done and make changes moving forward
global commitments to public health and healthcare for every individual
global commitments to living more sustainably
helping those in need – personally, institutionally and governmentally
kindness and honesty and striving to be our best selves
a sense of hope for the future
