The last few years have seen substantial growth for the New Israel Fund in the UK. With your support and generosity we are raising more money than ever for our grantees in Israel, and we are engaging with increasingly large numbers of people on the issues of justice and equality for all those living in Israel. I believe that this success reflects our growing relevance within the British Jewish community and beyond. NIF is extremely proud of the work that our partners in Israel do and the role that we play in Israel’s civil society. I believe that this work in Israel could not be more important.
Hannah Brady and Dana Segal have recently been appointed to the Board of Trustees of NIF. Our CEO, Adam Ognall has interviewed them about why they have got more deeply involved with NIF, what motivates them and what their aspirations are.
After decades of advocacy by multiple of our grantees, on March first, Israel’s Supreme ordered the State to recognise Reform and Conservative conversions.
On the first of March, the High Court of Justice accepted our year-long claim that the Israeli General Security Services tracking of civilians during the pandemic is a severe violation of the right to privacy and cannot continue past March 14, 2021 in its current form.
The New Israel Fund in the UK was established 25 years ago to champion a vision of an Israel true to our core human values of inclusiveness, equality, and justice. And together, we are making progress. Here are some snapshots of the work we have delivered together for equality, social justice and human rights for all Israelis these last 25 years.
Two weeks into Israel’s COVID-19 vaccination distribution plan, roughly 1.87 million of its 9 million citizens had received the COVID-19 vaccination—more than 16 percent of the population. By January 4, Israel had inoculated a higher proportion of its population than any other country, a major testament to its highly mobilized, universal health-care system.
