Created by a group of members of the ROI community of young, Jewish innovators, Jewcology is a resource for the Jewish-environmental sphere. The goal of the project is to produce a denominationally, generationally and regionally varied network in order to learn from each other about how best to maintain our Jewish responsibility to care for the environment. COEJL serves as a “content partner”, sharing resources and support for Jewcology’s burgeoning web-based approach to disseminating Jewish-environmental ideas.
