On Thursday, September 15, NIF hosted our national virtual gala. With participants from across the globe, we raised nearly $1 million to support NIF’s critical work to build a more just and inclusive Israeli society while celebrating the work of NIF’s action arm, Shatil, on its 40th anniversary.
STANDING TOGETHER / OMDIM BEYACHAD
Standing Together is a grassroots movement mobilizing Jews and Palestinians from all over Israel in pursuit of peace, equality, social and climate justice. When we stand together, we are strong enough to fundamentally alter the existing socio-political reality. The future that we want to see — with peace and independence for Israelis and Palestinians, full equality for all citizens, and true social, economic, and environmental justice — is possible. Because where there is struggle, there is hope.
