Two weeks ago, NIF launched a petition drive to send a message to Prime Minister Netanyahu, asking him to oppose the extremists usurping democracy in Israel. We set a goal of 10,000 signatures – and we’re almost there. If you haven’t signed the petition, please click here and add your name right now. If you’ve already signed, send it to five people you know who care about justice and freedom in Israel, and ask them to sign now.
We’re also proud to announce the re-launch of the NIF blog (newisraelblog.org). With the hundreds of organizations and thousands of activists we support in Israel, we will bring you news, opinion, and on-the-ground reports about human rights, social justice and religious pluralism on a regular basis. Moderated yes, censored no – because we at NIF believe in diverse voices, diverse viewpoints, and real discussion on the toughest issues facing Israel. Be polite, be thoughtful, and join our ongoing conversation, and don’t forget to link to our blog from your own blog or website.
Last but not least, at a time when the New Israel Fund and the organizations we support are still under unprecedented attack, we need your support more than ever. Read this NIF News for a sample of the important issues on which we’re working, and contribute what you can to keep that work going. So much depends on it.
