The Benefit was truly awesome. We stepped off the busy streets of Times Square and found ourselves in a tent city on Rothschild Boulevard in Tel Aviv. We hope you were as inspired as we were by the stories of the young Israelis who are leading the struggle for social justice in Israel. It was heartwarming to be in a room with so many other New Yorkers who support their cause. This year, we learned about efforts to promote gender equality, freedom to marry, affordable housing, democratic values and solidarity across Israel.
We'd like to thank all of you who supported the Benefit by making a donation, volunteering your time, inviting your friends and, of course, attending! For those of you who couldn't make it, learn more about the featured activists and their social justice work by clicking on the images to the right. You can also view photos from the event.
And of course, there's always next year!
The New Generations community within NIF's larger family is special. We hold unique events throughout the year to learn together and support one another. Stay tuned for other upcoming programs.
We look forward to seeing you soon,
Michal Lewin-Epstein & Steve Bocknek, Benefit Co-Chairs
