Teva Ivri – Jewish Nature
ID: 580504918    Category:
Teva Ivri promotes Jewish social-environmental responsibility in Israel, fusing ideas of culture, identity, and values through pluralistic grassroots action for a sustainable Israeli society. Our current flagship project is Israeli Shmita Initiative.
The Israeli Shmita Initiative seeks to re-establish the Shmita year as a time of personal reflection, meaningful learning, social involvement, and environmental responsibility in Israel. You can see a video about the Israeli Shmita Initiative on the More About Us tab below. The values inherent in Shmita – social and cultural equality, nature preservation, conservation of resources, spiritual development, and strengthening family and communal life – are all relevant to contemporary reality in Israel.
We want everyone in Israel to be aware that this is a sabbatical year, and what that means so that anyone may realize it in a way that works for them. The Israeli Shmita Initiative seeks to create an Israeli culture that makes learning and observing during the Shmita year a positive and unifying experience. We are doing this through information and education, providing opportunities for positive action, conferences, all in partnership with other organizations.

Teva Ivri was established in 2009 through a generous grant from the Fund for Support of Jewish Institutions Outside of Norway. Teva Ivri also received generous core support from the Common Sense Fund, whose great faith in our work enabled us to establish programs for cross-sector Jewish environmental leadership training. The enthusiasm and invaluable assistance of former MK and Teva Ivri President HaRav Michael Melchior, a leading figure in the fields of Judaism, environment, and education, helped Teva Ivri gain footing in the public sphere. With the expansion of our programs, Teva Ivri has been privileged to receive the invaluable support and guidance of the Green Environment Fund. Today, Teva Ivri is an influential organization in the environmental field in Israel. This is largely due to our commitment to operating within strategic partnerships with leading organizations in the fields of environment, Judaism, and education and with a variety of governmental institutions.
