Bonai Shalom is partnering with Hazon to receive the Hazon Seal of Sustainability, which recognizes Jewish organizations’ commitment to becoming more sustainable: improving food and environmental practices, treatment of animals, and impact on climate change. We are taking substantial steps toward sustainability by strengthening our Green Team, auditing our ecosystem impact, and launching exciting projects.
Our participation in this initiative signifies that, along with two dozen other Jewish organizations, we are a national leader in the realm of Jewish sustainability.
Projects to look forward to in 2016-2017:
- Designing and building a new chicken coop
- Advocating for better and more informed egg purchasing
- Incorporating ethical chicken care into religious school programming
