The People Demand …. A New Israel

On Thursday December 8th, Daniel Sokatch CEO of the New Israel Fund (NIF) will be speaking in Denver. This is an opportunity for the Boulder Jewish Community to come and learn about the important work of the New Israel Fund.

Daniel will discuss this summer’s social protest movement which swept through Israel. Nearly half a million Israelis took to the streets with the rallying cry: “the people demand social justice”. Among the topics he will raise:

  •  How do we ensure that the people’s call for change is translated into positive social policies?
  • Can we defeat the campaign by extremists to pass anti-democratic legislation and silence progressive voices in Israel?

The New Israel Fund — working since 1979 for a better, more just and compassionate Israeli society — has been supporting this grassroots movement while leading the fight against ultranationalist and religious extremist trends in Israel.

The event will be held at 7:00 pm on Thursday the 8th of December at the University of Denver at 2201 South Gaylord Street, Denver in the Sie Cheou-Kang Center for International Security and Diplomacy at the Josef Korbel School of International Studies, Ben Cherrington Hall, room 150.
