On the eve of Yom Haatzmaut, the Ambassador of Israel to Australia, His Excellency Yuval Rotem, has sent NIF Australia and its supporters a greeting, which you can read here (PDF) or below.
We are honoured that the Ambassador found time in his busy schedule to acknowledge our and NIF’s commitment to the well-being of Israel. We will be redoubling our efforts to raise awareness in Australia of the challenges facing Israeli society and to help Israelis who are working to realise the vision in Israel’s Declaration of Independence.
Next month, New Israel Fund CEO Daniel Sokatch is visiting Australia. We have been busy preparing and are excited to announce the dates of his public events:
- May 20th in Sydney (NIForum, for 20s and 30s)
- May 20th in Sydney's East
- May 21st in Sydney's Inner West
- May 22nd in Melbourne (NIForum, for 20s and 30s)
- May 23rd in Melbourne
All of us at NIF Australia look forward to seeing you at an event where you will have the opportunity to hear about and discuss with Daniel NIF's critical work in Israel.
On the eve of Yom Haatzmaut we celebrate Israel's independence and express our hope that in the year ahead Israel will be protected from all harm, and the human and civil rights of all its inhabitants will be further advanced.
