|Introducing Aytzim: Ecological Judaism|
By David Krantz
NEW YORK (Sept. 17, 2014) — Since our founding in 2001, the Green Zionist Alliance has successfully worked for the declaration of new nature preserves, the planting of millions of trees, and the construction of hundreds of miles of bike trails. But today we are proud to announce a large expansion in our work. And with that we have a new name: Aytzim: Ecological Judaism.
Shomrei Breishit: Rabbis and Cantors for the Earth
I was part of the founding team of Jewcology and I am very proud that it has a new home with Aytzim. We are in the process of completely revamping the site to make it easier to use, easier to find what you’re seeking and easier to connect with Jewish environmental organizations. The site now features more than 170 initiatives, 600 resources and 1100 blog posts.
David Krantz is the president and chairperson of the Green Zionist Alliance.
