We aim to educate and mobilize the Jewish community against hydrofracking, an extreme form of natural gas extraction that uses huge amounts of water mixed with toxic chemicals. Hydrofracking pollutes the land, the air and the water, and poses serious risks to human health, especially to children. As Jews, we recognize our responsibility to safeguard the earth for our children and grandchildren. The expansion of hydrofracking is not aligned with our Jewish values.
We are a network of volunteer Jewish activists, individuals and organizations working to educate and mobilize the Jewish community against hydrofracking.
We recognize that there are different policy positions against hydrofracking: some support a ban, some support a moratorium and some support increased regulation. Our goal is to connect the Jewish community to educational resources and advocacy organizations and to mobilize it on this issue.
