The recent Joshua Venture Dual Investment Program Applications for 2010 were a wonderful example of Hazon’s impact in the Jewish community. Two of the newly appointed Fellows are directors of the two organizations in which Hazon is a fiscal sponsor: Nati Passow of the Jewish Farm School and Zelig Golden of Wilderness Torah. A third Fellow is our friend, Eli Winkelman, the founder of Challah for Hunger, which Hazon helped grow when it was part of our food program in 2008-2009.
Other programs have their connections to Hazon as well — Rachel Nussbaum is the Rabbi at the Kavana Cooperative, the host of one of our two Hazon CSAs in Seattle, WA (learn more about it here). And, Rabbi Ari Weiss and Uri L’Tzedek have been integral in the push for ethical Kosher food, including, of course, Kosher meat.
Huge congratulations to all of the new Fellows!
