Safeguarding Human Rights and Democracy
A Just Society at Peace with Itself and Its Neighbors
Israel’s Declaration of Independence establishes a state that ensures “complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants irrespective of religion, race or sex.” NIF works to transform that ideal into reality and to promote the protection of human rights for all people living under Israel’s control.
