Jewish Climate Coalition

The Jewish Climate Coalition

The earth's climate is reaching a tipping point, and it's hard not to feel overwhelmed by the magnitude of the problem. The JCC is inspired by the powerful voices of young people in our world like Greta Thunberg, the 16-year-old Swedish climate activist, who are shouting as loudly as they can, demanding that we listen to their concerns, understand the gravity of the situation, and do something now, before it is too late.

The JCC is proud to be a founding member organization of the newly formed Jewish Climate Coalition, along with our steering committee partners from Hazon, the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, and the Jewish Climate Action Network NYC. The coalition is growing rapidly, and more partners and opportunities for involvement will be announced soon.
