Last month, our annual Shira Herzog Symposium brought together three prominent progressive voices to talk to NIFC supporters about what leadership looks like in Israel today, and how your support makes all the difference. You can now relive the highlights of the Symposium, or see them for the first time, here.
Mutasim Ali, the first African refugee granted status in Israel, a survivor of the genocide in Darfur, and an activist for refugees, inspired us with his story and his vision for more just treatment of African refugees in Israel.
Columnist Peter Beinart and novelist Ayelet Waldman (recently the editor, with her husband, Michael Chabon, of Kingdom of Olives and Ash) had a lively conversation about what it means to be a progressive Jew in the diaspora, and how much our support means to activists in Israel.
