By funding organisations like the Hotline for Refugees and Migrants–Israel, Shira Sebban feels closer to Israel, and is able to have an impact to protect people seeking asylum and refugees there, just like she does here in Australia.
Chloe, Graham and Bec are recent graduates of our Naomi Chazan Fellowship program. For Chloe, being involved in NIF meant having a place to channel her passion for Israel after she left Habonim Dror. Bec was drawn to be part of NIF because of our investments in projects promoting equality and democracy. For Graham, it meant creating a bridge between liberal values in the Diaspora and liberal values in Israel.
Melissa Castan, who is also one of NIF Australia's board members, came to NIF because we fund projects which support inclusion, democracy and social movements that work for positive change in Israeli society.
