Event: The Politics of Water, with Gidon Bromberg

Friends,

We thought we would pass on to you the below invitation from our friends in the Inner West who are hosting prominent Israeli environmentalist Gidon Bromberg on Thursday night.

Gidon's work, supported for many years by the New Israel Fund, is crucial to setting up peace in Israel and Palestine. Friends of the Middle East's work has been globally praised, and Gidon and FOEME were recently profiled by Thomas Friedman in the New York Times.

We know that early January isn't the best time for an event, but if you're around Sydney it would be great to see you there.

Kind regards,

Liam Getreu
Executive Director

Achievements in 2014

2014 will be remembered as a difficult one in Israel’s history. We witnessed a bloody war during which civilians bore the brunt of the toll, horrible hate crimes perpetrated by both Jews and Arabs, and most recently a swathe of anti-democratic legislation. With everything that happened in Israel this year, our partnership to foster democratic values, and support human rights and social justice has never been more crucial.

Throughout 2014, the New Israel Fund and our grantees lowered tensions between Jewish- and Palestinian-Israelis, ensured lines of communication were kept open at the most crucial times, provided protection for the citizens most vulnerable to the dangers of rocket fire from Gaza, and empowered human rights monitors to continue their work.
