Canfei Nesharim Annual Appeal

We recently received this message from Evonne Marzouk of Cafnei Nesharim.

As we come to the end of 2010, I am filled with gratitude for your continued support and friendship. It’s been a busy and challenging year, and for Canfei Nesharim, a truly amazing year. Many of you remember the earliest stages of Canfei Nesharim: camping trips in Frederick, MD; late-night international conference calls; our first organizing meeting in Passaic, NJ. So much has changed since that time, both locally and globally. As for Canfei Nesharim, we’ve been called “the little engine that could” – and in the last eight years we’ve grown from a simple idea into an international organization.

This year, with the support of the ROI Innovation Fund, we’ve been able to offer unique and important contributions to the Jewish-environmental field. We’ve launched, the new social media website for Jewish environmentalists, and we’ll be organizing new leadership trainings in three cities in the first half of 2011. We’re entering the third year of our Communities Program, with synagogues participating from all across the United States. And we continue to create deep Torah learning resources about the environment, which are used across the Jewish community and around the world.

As we come to the end of the year, I am writing to request your financial support for Canfei Nesharim. Environmental challenges are among the most important concerns we must face as we consider the future for our children. Canfei Nesharim helps Jews apply the wisdom of our tradition to these challenges, in a way that is inspiring, practical, and hopeful for the future. Please invest in that future by making a tax-deductible donation to Canfei Nesharim today. Your support will keep the “little engine” running strong.

You can donate directly on our partner site, Razoo, at

With best wishes for a bright 2011,

Evonne Marzouk
