This year, the New Israel Fund has produced a magazine for Yom Kippur that is being distributed across synagogues throughout Israel, as well as through Haaretz.
This year, the articles are written by members if the NIF’s International Council who are using this traditional day for soul-searching to discuss difficult issues which Israeli society is facing -- the country's borders, the need to protect human rights, the economic system and more.
The authors include: Prof. Aaron Ciechanover, 2004 Nobel Prize Laureate in Chemistry; Prof. Daniel Kahneman, 2002 Nobel Prize Laureate in Economics; Atty. Talia Sasson; Prof. David Harel; Dr. Baruch Ovadia; musician and writer Shaanan Street; poet and artist Ronny Someck; Eli Bareket, Dr. Yael Sternhell; Dr. Ishak Saporta; Prof. Tova Hartman; and Rabbi Charlie Buckholtz.
The New Israel Fund Australia Foundation wishes you and your family well over the fast.
