Support social justice and human rights, and receive news and updates on our projects and upcoming events


The New Israel Fund Australia Foundation is a leading organisation committed to social justice, human rights and democracy in Israel. We work with Israelis experiencing poverty, discrimination and injustice to create a more inclusive, tolerant and equal society.

Based on the vision of the country’s founders, we work towards an Israel that is “based on freedom, justice and peace as envisaged by the prophets of Israel… [and] complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants irrespective of religion, race or sex.”

NIF Australia works to defend human rights and democratic infrastructure, relieve poverty and economic inequality, advance the status of women, address inequality in the Arab-Israeli community, promote the rights of refugees and people seeking asylum, and protect the rights of vulnerable communities.

Let me introduce you to our newest cohort of Naomi Chazan Fellows, our third. They’re in Israel right now, visiting Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, the Galilee and the West Bank, meeting with some of Israel’s most important social change activists.
Limmud Oz (Sydney – June 10-12) and Yom Limmud (Melbourne – June 18) are back in 2017, and with so much to see we thought we’d offer some suggestion on speakers and sessions you might find interesting.
This op-ed by NIF Australia's executive director Liam Getreu was published in the Australian Jewish News on June 2, 2017, its "Six-Day War: 50th Anniversary" edition.
