Jewish Energy Covenant Campaign

"It is not your part to finish the task, yet you are not free to desist from it."

During this time of pivotal global environmental challenge, we have a unique opportunity to work together toward a better future on the common ground of a healthy environment, green jobs, and a secure energy future.  Our actions include living more sustainably, leaving a smaller carbon footprint, and repairing God's Creation by seeking to share inspiration in the cause rather than facing the struggle alone.  By signing this Covenant, I commit, through a campaign facilitated by the Coalition on the Environment and Jewish Life, to join hands with a broad community of Jews working to address this challenge together.

I Pledge:

As an INDIVIDUAL CONSUMER – to CHOOSE transportation, food, building, and other options that conserve more, use less, and eliminate unnecessary waste.

As a JEW IN COMMUNITY – to JOIN or to INITIATE communal actions like greening our synagogue, school or workplace, cleaning up trash, planting trees, and creating online activism; to ACT as a model and raise AWARENESS of sustainable behaviors, and to CALL ON others--friends, family, colleagues-- also to PLEDGE and to ACT.

As a RESPONSIBLE CITIZEN – to ADVOCATE that communal leaders, elected officials, and the media support domestic and international policies that:

* REDUCE environmental degradation and excess resource use;
* PROMOTE American energy independence and security by using less foreign oil and producing more energy from clean, sustainable, domestic sources;
* PROTECT those living in poverty – at home and around the world – from the adverse impacts of the environmental crises of our time; and IMPROVE their conditions and opportunities;
* EMPOWER all people to take part in the new, green economy and help build a sustainable society;
* ASSURE that our world’s environment will be made better for our children and grandchildren and the world’s future generations.
