  4. 4. Featuring P eter Beinart A great friend of the New Israel Fund, prominent journalist and author Peter Beinart is one of the most vibrant new voices on engagement with Israel. Beinart’s groundbreaking essay about the American Jewish relationship to Israel, “The Failure of the American Jewish Establishment,” became last year’s Jewish story of the year. A Schwartz Senior Fellow at the New America Foundation and Associate Professor of Journalism and Political Science at The City University of New York, Beinart is also Senior Political Writer for The Daily Beast, and a contributor to Time. Beinart formerly served as editor of The New Republic and has also written for The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, The Financial Times, the Boston Globe, the Atlantic Monthly, Newsweek and Slate—to name a few. He has appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos,” “Charlie Rose,” “The McLaughlin Group,” “The Colbert Report,” MTV, CNN, Fox, MSNBC and many other television and radio programs. Beinart graduated from Yale University in 1993, winning a Rhodes scholarship for graduate study at Oxford University where he graduated from University College with an M.Phil in International Relations. He lives with his wife and children in New York City.4 New Israel Fund | Guardian of Democracy Dinner
  5. 5. Honoring R abbi A my E ilberg & P rofessor L ouis Newman Recipients of the Guardian of Democracy Award Two truly significant figures in the American Jewish community, Rabbi Amy Eilberg and Professor Louis Newman have proudly supported and advocated for NIF since 1984. Amy has been a pioneer in countless ways: as the first woman rabbi ordained in the Conservative Movement, as co-founder of the Bay Area Jewish Healing Center, as a leader in Jewish hospice work and spiritual direction, and as a bridge-builder—between Israelis and Palestinians; between Jews, Christians and Muslims; and among Jews across the ideological spectrum. She is at work on a book on Judaism and peacemaking. Louis is among the country’s leading scholars of Jewish ethics and a celebrated professor at Carleton College, where he has taught for nearly three decades. He is author of numerous publications, including his most recent Repentance: the Meaning and Practice of Teshuvah. Louis is also a devoted community leader, serving as president of both the St. Paul Talmud Torah and Beth Jacob Congregation, his synagogue in Saint Paul. Louis is also a longtime member of NIF’s International Council. Amy and Louis live in Minnesota, but maintain a deep connection to the Bay Area, where Amy has many colleagues, friends and her daughter, Penina.New Israel Fund | Guardian of Democracy Dinner 5

These are bookmarks hand embroidered by the women of Desert Embroidery, an initiative developed by NIF grantee Lakia: Association for the Improvement of the Status of Women. The majority of Israel’s Bedouin citizens live below the poverty line and in unrecognized villages, where they have little political clout, fewemployment opportunities, sub-standard healthcare and education, and often no electricity, runningwater, or sewage systems. Desert Embroidery is one of several initiatives that help Bedouin womencontribute to their own and their families’ livelihoods. Through empowerment, advocacy, education,and leadership training projects, the New Israel Fund and its action arm, Shatil, are helpingthousands of Israel’s Bedouin citizens achieve lives of dignity. 6 New Israel Fund | Guardian of Democracy Dinner

Led by young, Jewish Israelis who wantto live in a society that respects human rights, eachFriday hundreds—and sometimes thousands—ofactivists from all over Israel congregate in the smallneighborhood, standing shoulder to shoulder withlocal Arab residents. Attempts to suppress the protesthave been continuous and severe, including the arrestsof more than a hundred people; yet the demonstrationshave only increased in numbers and influence. Susie Coliver and Sandy Coliver established the Fund in 2002 to recognize and remember their mother Edith Coliver’s tremendous contribution to the cause of human and civil rights. Always with an open heart and an open mind, Edith brought great thoughtfulness and genuine compassion to her activism on behalf of a just and tolerant Israeli society. Her service on the International and Regional Boards of NIF was emblematic of her lifelong commitment to human rights and democratic values.10 New Israel Fund | Guardian of Democracy Dinner
