The work of the New Israel Fund has always been guided by our shared values – democracy, equality and social justice.
Faced with a global pandemic and ensuing political instability, we have been reminded that at its core our work is about one thing more than any other: connecting our community of supporters here in the UK with the activists, advocates and allies in Israel to meet the challenges of the day, together.
Whether defending democracy and civil liberties in the shadow of the coronavirus, standing up for the most vulnerable, or opposing plans to annex parts of the West Bank, the New Israel Fund will be here to stand strong for our values both for today and the future. That’s the kind of work that you can read and watch about in this interactive review of 2020. Please click on the graphics below to explore further.
Our work in this last year was dominated by the need to respond to the immediate and urgent needs exposed by the pandemic: supporting those most vulnerable and marginalised communities and defending civil rights in a time of crisis. At the same time we continued to invest in our long-term priorities: defending democracy and human rights and strengthening Jewish – Arab Partnership.
