About Us

The word hazon means vision. Hazon is the Jewish lab for sustainability. We’re the largest dedicated environmental organization in the American Jewish community. We work to create a healthier and more sustainable Jewish community, and a healthier and more sustainable world for all. 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 were founded in 2000 and we have grown every year since, by pretty much all metrics. 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.

We effect change in three ways:



  • Transformative Experiences: Immersive multi-day programs that directly touch people's lives in powerful ways
  • Thought-Leadership: Changing the world through the power of new ideas and fresh thinking, including writing, teaching, curriculum-development and advocacy
  • Capacity-Building: Not just working with people as individuals, but explicitly supporting and networking great projects and partners in North America and Israel
