The Coalition on the Environment and Jewish Life (COEJL) believes that effective environmental action comes from building support across a wide array of Jewish viewpoints. Therefore, it is necessary to have informed discussions about the risks and advantages of different energy sources and environmental actions. To aid in this endeavor, we have created this new page, dedicated to educating Jews about the challenges of energy policy today and sharing diverse perspectives on the most pressing energy issues facing the Jewish community.
