The New Israel Fund (NIF) is the leading organization advancing democracy and equality for all Israelis.
The ultra-Orthodox hierarchy denies Reform, Conservative and secular Jews recognition, equal funding for schools and rabbis, and the right to religious freedom. NIF says No. We believe that Israel must be a pluralistic and tolerant democracy. Say No to those who say, “There is only one way
to be Jewish in Israel.”
Women in Israel face lower wages, domestic violence, harassment, and sexist perceptions of their role. NIF says No. We believe that women deserve protection from violence and greater opportunities for education, jobs and leadership positions. Say No to those who say, “Israeli women already have all the rights they need.”
Compromising on civil rights costs Israel its democratic values and international support. NIF says No. Israel must live up to the dream of its founders and to the best Jewish and universal values. Say No to those who say, “Israel can’t afford the civil liberties that more secure nations have.”
With the largest income gap between rich and poor of any developed nation, Israel is jeopardizing social cohesion and abandoning the Jewish commitment to social justice. NIF says No. Israel must find innovative solutions for poverty, unemployment, hunger and homelessness. Say No to those who say, “the poor in israel just need to work harder.”
