Year of Jewish Action on the Environment

Canfei Nesharim is proud to launch our Year of Jewish Action on the Environment, in partnership with Jewcology!  Actions will be released approximately every two weeks through Tu b’Shevat 5774.  
Together, we can make a difference!  Following up on our Year of Jewish Learning on the Environment, this year we will be focusing on actions to save energy and reduce food waste, practical actions called for by the Jewish mitzvah of bal tashchit.
The Year of Action is a project of Jewcology, in partnership with Canfei Nesharim and in coordination with the Coalition on the Environment and Jewish Life (COEJL),  along with many other Jewish environmental organizations and initiatives, and with the support of the ROI Community.
New actions will be posted during the course of the year.  You can report your actions and see the results of our shared actions on Jewcology.
The current available actions are below.
