LO B’SHAMAYIM HI: IT IS NOT BEYOND US IN HEAVEN. WE HAVE THE CAPACITY. WE HAVE THE SCIENCE, WE HAVE THE RESOURCES, WE HAVE THE PEOPLE, AND WE HAVE THE POWER. IT IS IN OUR HANDS AND IN OUR HEARTS, AND WE CAN DO IT.

Experts agree that the most important climate action we can take this year is to vote. So we’re gearing up for our most ambitious voter mobilization effort yet!

Chutzpah is Dayenu’s signature non-partisan effort to mobilize climate-concerned, high potential voters in key states. Our goal: elect climate champions with the chutzpah to deliver urgent action on climate, at the scale that science and justice demand. 

American Jews are poised for action. In 2020 and 2022, we organized scores of partners and more than 1,000 Jewish volunteers to contact over a million climate-concerned voters. Jewish Americans understand the urgency to act. Nearly 8 in 10 consider the climate crisis a major problem; since 2020, climate change has been a top five voting issue for Jewish voters and the number one issue for Jewish voters under 40.

Rooted in spirit and meaning. Our Chutzpah campaign includes kavanot (intention-setting), live musical performances, and community building–to nourish our souls and fortify us for the long-term.

Now is the time. With nearly 9 in 10 Americans experiencing extreme weather in the last five years, this election will determine whether we avert climate catastrophe and instead, set a course for a just, livable future. With the stakes so high, now is the time to engage our friends, family, neighbors, and community members to reach as many climate voters as we can.
