The Big Green Jewish Website is the home of the climate change campaign of the UK Jewish community. We campaign to raise awareness about environmental issues. Our aim is to educate about climate change and empower people to make changes in their lives that will make a difference to the world.
Big Green Jewish has recently become a part of Tzedek
, the Jewish community's response to extreme poverty. We feel that this is a perfect fit given the strong link between climate change and the challenges facing people living in developing countries.
The website is designed for you, whether you are a teacher in a Jewish day school that wants to educate your pupils about environmental sustainability; an individual that wants to live a greener, friendlier life-style; or a rabbi seeking to implement green and Jewish values in your community.
On the website you will be able to find out not just how you can get involved with global campaigns, but where you can learn to ride a bike if you want to make the transition from a driver to a cyclist, or how you can grow your own food for a more seasonal and sustainable lifestyle.
Since our launch in November 2009, we have continued to grow, with new sections being added and old ones being updated. The campaign is still developing in new directions and we are always keen to hear from supporters. If you have any suggestions, please email email@example.com.
The Big Green Jewish Website was founded in 2006 as a joint venture between The Noah Project and ESIAG (Environmental and Social Issues Action Group) at The Board of Deputies of British Jews.
This website was redeveloped and launched in November 2009. The Jewish Social Action Forum would like to thank The Noah project and ESIAG for their support and assistance with moving the Jewish Climate Change Campaign forward.
