“Teva Ivri” is a non profit organization that promotes Jewish environmental responsibility in Israel. It consists of religious and secular people, intellectuals and activists, who strive to expand our identity as Jews living in Israel to include our commitment to a sustainable way of living. This goal intersects with the view of the environmental crisis as a human-made global emergency, and its solution as one that requires local responsibility, drawing from our culture and heritage.
Over the last few years, the social and environmental challenges the state of Israel is facing seem to be increasing, whereas the ability to handle them is decreasing due to social division and the loss of unity. Teva Ivri is unique in that we address these problems holistically and positively, not through protest, but by promoting solutions for the future, based on the common ground of our shared Jewish heritage.
