Adamah Southern California

Launching Summer 2023

In 2023, with seed funding from the Diane and Guilford Glazer Foundation and several individual donors, Adamah is launching an impact hub in Southern California. California is both a vibrant nexus of 21st century Jewish life and a forward-thinking testing ground for ambitious climate initiatives. The region is home to the second largest Jewish population in the country, and the entire state is on the front lines of the climate crisis, experiencing escalating natural disasters year over year.

Serving Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego, this impact hub will be pivotal to accomplishing Adamah’s mission of boldly engaging American Jews in climate action that is rooted in their Judaism.

Adamah SoCal Goals:

  • Inspire Jewish teens across the region to engage as Jewish leaders, to step up, speak out, and help mobilize Jewish institutions and communities to take climate action.
  • Mobilize Jewish climate action across the region, cutting greenhouse gas emissions at Jewish institutions, supporting nature-based solutions and–where possible–engaging in activism and advocacy as well.
  • Build and strengthen local Jewish community through engagement in Jewish environmental education and climate work, grounded in the issues that are most compelling to those who live in Southern California.
