Human Rights Awards Dinner 2020 – At Home

On Sunday 8 November we held our very first digital HRAD At Home. This event was an opportunity to gather with the NIF community across the UK and the world in support of our work.

It was an incredibly moving celebration of the New Israel Fund and our shared values. I’m so grateful to every one of the 600 people who registered to be with us on the night, and we’re thrilled to announce that, together, we raised over £550,000 for equality and democracy in Israel.

HRAD At Home boasted noteworthy speakers, music from some of Israel’s best musicians such as NOA, and eye-opening films from NIF’s grantees as we celebrated all that we have accomplished and considered our ongoing work.

It was so inspiring to hear from some of Israel’s most important voices for equality and justice: our award winners the Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI), Israel Women’s Network (IWN) and Women Against Violence (WAV), Achinoam Nini (NOA) and NIF’s Executive Director Mickey Gitzin.

In case you’d like to experience the evening, here are a few highlights:
