Summary of Activity

Congregation Kolot Chayeinu in Brooklyn removed its savings from JPMorgan Chase in 2018. This made the congregation the first U.S. synagogue to publicly divest in opposition to the funding of fossil fuels.


The move is significant because Chase has lent $196 billion USD to the fossil-fuel industry in the last three years, including the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline.
