New Israel Fund Australia Foundation aims to increase awareness and understanding of the importance of civil and human rights, social and economic justice, democracy, diversity, reconciliation and peace.

NIF Australia is a home of progressive engagement with Israel that seeks to create active and deep connections between Australian Jews, their communities and Israel.

We raise funds to empower Israeli civil society through the New Israel Fund. Founded in 1979, NIF is a partnership between Israelis and the Diaspora, and is the leading organisation committed to equality and democracy for all Israelis.

Earlier this year, we launched the Naomi Chazan Fellowship, a ten month leadership development program specifically tailored for young Jewish adults to build on their knowledge of Israel, and work to create a more holistic and pluralist communal discourse around Israel.
In a charged conversation with NRG, the International Director of the New Israel Fund, Daniel Sokatch, rebuffs the criticism against his organization: “They say that we are anti-Zionist.  It’s a mistake, we want what’s best for Israel.”  In his opinion, part of what’s best is to show the world its ethical problems.
