Mission

The Green Zionist Alliance, a North America-based 501(c)3 nonprofit, offers a place for all people — regardless of political or religious affiliation — who care about humanity's responsibility to preserve the Earth and the special responsibility of the Jewish people to preserve the ecology of Israel. The GZA works to educate and mobilize people around the world for Israel’s environment; to protect Israel's environment and support its environmental movement; to improve environmental practices within the World Zionist Organization and its constituent agencies; and to inspire people to work for positive change. By focusing on the environment while working from a pluralistic and multicultural base, the Green Zionist Alliance seeks to bridge the differences between and within religions and people — helping to build a peaceful and sustainable future for Israel and the Middle East.


Israel’s environment is in serious trouble


Our members, volunteers and leaders come from across the political and religious spectra. We care deeply about the country, the people and the land of Israel, and we are dedicated to working toward a sustainable future. We work closely with a broad coalition of Jewish and environmental organizations and leaders in Israel and around the world to ensure that our policies complement local initiatives.


As a member organization of the American Zionist Movement and the World Zionist Organization, the Green Zionist Alliance accepts the Jerusalem Program, which delineates the foundations of Zionism.

The Green Zionist Alliance was founded in 2001 primarily by Dr. Alon Tal, Rabbi Michael Cohen and Dr. Eilon Schwartz, along with many other volunteers, including Alison Hill and current GZA leader David Krantz. In 2006 the GZA incorporated as a 501(c)3 nonprofit.
