Part of NIF’s mission is to create a safe space for dialogue and engagement between all sections of Israeli society: religious and secular, Orthodox and Reform, Ashkenazi and Mizrachi, Jews and Arabs. We value all those that make up Israeli society and work to empower them to control their own lives, while peacefully co-existing with their neighbours.
