The word hazon means vision. We work to create a healthier and more sustainable Jewish community, and a healthier and more sustainable world for all.
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 at the Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center, in Falls Village, CT, and we have staff in San Francisco, San Diego, Boulder, Denver and Philadelphia. We welcome participants of all religious backgrounds and none, and we work closely with a wide range of institutions and leaders across the Jewish world.
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
