One of the blessings of living in the United States is that Jews do not have to stand alone. Our history has not always been so kind. Working with concerned people of faith from other religions amplifies our voice and increases our reach. When working in concert, the religious voice can be the final little push that makes advocacy succeed; hand in hand, we are stronger.

At more personal level though, putting faith into action is an act of prayer unlike any other. When one is marching and the person next to you is wearing a cross, a hijab or a saffron robe, the words of the psalmist ring clear, “Faithfulness and truth meet; justice and well-being kiss. Truth springs up from the earth; justice looks down from heaven.” (Ps. 85:11-12.)

Please find below a list of allies in the religious world of the United States, who are also dedicated to solving climate change and addressing environmental justice. Engagement of local houses of worship vary, even when the national judicatory calls for strong action.
