2010 Annual Report
NIF 2010 Annual Report
2 0 1 0 A N N U AL RE PORT DEMOCRACY AT THE CROSSROADS DEMOCRACY AT THE CROS Dear Friends: If you followed the Jewish press and our newsletters in 2010, you know that it was a watershed year for the New Israel Fund and for the Israel we love. Never before has our work and our family of organizations been under such sustained attack, in Israel and even overseas. Never have the most basic tenets of Israeli democracy been called into such question. And never have we been called upon to lead an alliance of those determined to re-commit Israel to the progressive values that motivate us to activism for equality, for justice and for peace. The good news is that the New Israel Fund, a thoughtful organization with a long track record of accomplishment, is transitioning quickly to meet these new challenges. We can no longer be content with our accomplishments speaking for themselves; there is too much at stake for that now. With your support, we are building a more powerful, more agile, more visible New Israel Fund. We are augmenting our time-tested strategies of grant-making and capacity-building with a new focus on advocating for democratic values. We are enlisting new and even unlikely allies, and engaging with leaders of Israel and of Jewish communities around the world. We are developing both short and long-term strategies to safeguard civil society and our family of organizations. This is about the Israel we believe in. And as we look ahead during these uncertain times, we must ask ourselves: What kind of Israel do we want to bequeath to our children? We believe that the answer must be the Israel envisioned in the Declaration of Independence, an Israel characterized by peace, equality, justice and inclusiveness. This is the Israel that we are fighting for. As always, and with your continued support, we will find creative ways to meet these new challenges, stay faithful to our mission and our values, and, together, build a better Israel. Sincerely, Naomi Chazan Daniel Sokatch Rachel Liel SSROADS N W E S The New Israel Fund and SHATIL The New Israel Fund (NIF) is the leading organization advancing democracy and equality for all Israelis. We believe that Israel can live up to its founders’ vision of a state that ensures complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants, without regard to religion, race, gender or national identity. Widely credited with building Israel’s progressive civil society from scratch, we have provided over $200 million to more than 800 cutting-edge organizations since our inception. And we are more than a funder; NIF is at philanthropy’s cutting edge thanks in large part to SHATIL, the New Israel Fund Initiative for Social Change. SHATIL provides NIF grantees and other social change organizations with hands-on assistance, including training, resources and workshops on various aspects of nonprofit management. Today, NIF/ SHATIL is a leading advocate for democratic values, builds coalitions, empowers activists and often takes the initiative in setting the public agenda. Our values drive our work. We fight inequality, injustice and extremism because we understand that justice is the precondition for a successful democracy—and the only lasting road to peace. The New Israel Fund’s founders wanted to connect with Israel in a way that reflected their progressive values, and thousands of Israelis and Diaspora Jews have joined with us for that reason. Our supporters love Israel, and see it clearly as striving for an ideal not yet attained. 2010 ANNUAL REPORT NIF.ORG 3 2010 ACHIEVEMENTS N W E S Civil and Human Rights The Israeli Defense Force (IDF) credited NIF partner B’Tselem and other NIF-supported human rights groups for reports and information that contributed to its new, more civilian-conscious operational policy. According to a report submitted by Israel to the UN on Operation Cast Lead, the IDF has begun to take steps to reduce the number of civilian casualties in future conflicts and the use of phosphorus will be limited. “The IDF has begun implementing operational changes in commands and the fighting tradition,” the report states, “to minimize civilian casualties and harm to civilian property in the future.” NIF grantees Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) and Adalah: Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel successfully challenged discriminatory location-based tax breaks. In the High Court Ruling, the panel of three judges said the tax break “is unconstitutional because it bestows tax benefits to several 4 DEMOCRACY AT THE CROSSROADS NEW ISRAEL FUND communities without egalitarian, clear and written criteria; not one Arab community was deemed eligible for these exemptions.” Social and Economic Justice NIF grantees scored a series of important successes that will ensure access to affordable housing for Israelis with limited financial means. Affordable housing projects are now planned for Tel Aviv, Ashdod, Ra’anana and Jerusalem. These achievements are due to the work of the Coalition for Affordable Housing, comprised of NGOs including NIF grantees Bimkom: Planners for Planning Rights, Association for Distributive Justice, Community Advocacy: Genesis Israel, ACRI and SHATIL. In a major victory against discrimination, five Ethiopian immigrant families defended the right of their children to participate as equals in Israeli schools. In 2004 the children were expelled from an Orthodox kindergarten in Arad because there were “too many Ethiopians enrolled.” Represented by NIF grantee Tebeka – Center for Legal Aid and Advocacy for Ethiopian Jews in Israel, the families will each receive $16,250 to be spent on educational tools and enrichment for the children. Religious Pluralism Joining voices with NIF grantee Israel Religious Action Center along with the majority of North American Jews including the Reform, Conservative and Reconstructionist movements, NIF rallied against legislation that would have given the ultra-Orthodox absolute control over conversion in Israel. Among other provisions, the Rotem Bill would have required converts to live an Orthodox lifestyle. The bill has been put on hold indefinitely. fines for polluters. Tel Aviv is the third most polluted city in the European and Mediterranean region, and 1,100 people die annually in the Greater Tel Aviv region as a result of air pollution. IUED is supported by NIF through the Green Environment Fund. In a precedent setting ruling, the Be’er Sheva District Court ruled that the recognized Bedouin village of Keseifa near Arad must be connected to sewage infrastructure. The decision was handed down following a petition by IUED. IUED’s annual environmental poverty report found that 150 Israeli towns and villages do not have adequate sewage infrastructure, resulting in millions of cubic meters of raw sewage flowing across village streets and countryside. LBGT Rights After a two-month legal struggle, Dan Goldberg finally returned home to Jerusalem with his newborn twins. Goldberg and his partner built a family with the help of a surrogate mother in India. But after the birth, a Jerusalem court refused to allow Goldberg to conduct the required paternity test to establish parenting rights. NIF grantee New Family: Organization for Family Rights, who represented Goldberg, appealed the ruling to the District Court, which ordered that paternity tests must be permitted. Following other legal precedents won by the NIF family, the Ministry of Interior will be required to register both Goldberg and his partner as parents of the children. Within days of an ultra-Orthodox edict issued by some Israeli rabbis forbidding Jews to sell or rent housing to non-Jews, over 1,000 rabbis signed an NIF-initiated letter condemning the ruling and calling on rabbis in Israel to take a forceful public stand against religious racism. The signatories included rabbis from across the globe and from every denomination. Environment Thanks to the efforts of NIF grantee Israel Union of Environmental Defense (IUED), Israel’s Clean Air Law came into effect on January 1, 2011. The law, which IUED formulated and lobbied for, sets strict emission standards, regulates procedures for monitoring air quality, and ensures public access to results and information. Most importantly, the law stipulates heavy N W E S 2010 ANNUAL REPORT NIF.ORG 5 Democracy at a Crossroads I believe Israel has a glorious future before it—not just another sovereign nation, but as an embodiment of the great ideals of our civilization. —Harry S. Truman N W E S the ideals of which president truman spoke, which are embodied in Israel’s own Declaration of Independence, are the values of the New Israel Fund. In the 63 years since those words were written, never has the work of the New Israel Fund been more integral to a society once envisioned as a model for equality, justice, compassion and inclusion. Emboldened and increasingly powerful, Israel’s ultranationalists grabbed headlines in 2010 with an agenda often inimical to those values, and to the values of liberal democracy. But the New Israel Fund, along with our allies, proved to be a force to be reckoned with. Working in the most challenging climate in the 6 DEMOCRACY AT THE CROSSROADS NEW ISRAEL FUND organization’s history, NIF and our family of grantees and partners emerged as leaders of the effort to preserve Israeli democracy. In the wake of Operation Cast Lead and the shocked Israeli reaction to the harsh conclusions of the Goldstone report, elements of the governing coalition and their allies began a concerted attack on critics of Israeli government policy. Refusing to differentiate between Israel’s real adversaries and those who dissent from an ultra-nationalist worldview, the extremist agenda manifested itself in anti-democratic legislation, repression of peaceful protest and harsh policies aimed at Israeli Arab citizens. In this atmosphere, NIF itself became a target. Early in the year, a radical right-wing group, headed by leaders from the hard-line settler movement, began a well-funded smear campaign against NIF and its internationally-recognized human rights grantees. The campaign was the first shot in an ongoing battle to stifle dissent and shut down Israel’s human rights community. Friends, Adversaries and Unlikely Allies The first campaign against NIF, as well as subsequent efforts, largely failed. In the wake of the initial attack, some Knesset members proposed an official committee of inquiry to investigate NIF and many of its human rights grantees. After widespread support for NIF and its mission was voiced to Israeli leaders both by Israelis from across the political spectrum as well as leading figures in the global Jewish community—including mainstream Jewish leaders, prominent rabbis and journalists—the parliamentary inquiry was defeated. Soon, ever-greater numbers of Israelis joined the chorus of opposition to the political witch hunt against progressive civil society. In ruling against the inquiry, Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein said, “One of the characteristics of a democracy is the protection of human rights. For that reason in Israel, as in every other democracy, human rights organizations are allowed to operate freely.” been granted exclusive authority over conversion, and its hegemony over Jewish practice and identity would have been formally ratified. Joining with our grantees representing the liberal streams of Judaism in Israel, and as part of a worldwide coalition of opposition to the bill, the NIF family rallied against the legislation. Following the backlash, proponents of the bill backed down and the legislation has now been put on hold indefinitely. The New NIF Despite the unprecedented and unexpected fight to preserve civil society and democracy, the New Israel Fund family of organizations also saw progress in our day-to-day work of building a better Israel. In 2010, NIF hosted our second annual public wedding, raising awareness about the need for a civil marriage alternative; hundreds of Israelis turned out to celebrate. We successfully advocated on behalf of Mizrachi schoolgirls segregated from their Ashkenazi But the Knesset remained a battlefield. Despite a 2009 defeat for legislation requiring a loyalty oath, Avigdor Lieberman’s Yisrael Beitenu party again pushed for its passage. With support from Prime Minister Netanyahu, and despite strong lobbying efforts from NIF/SHATIL and its flagship grantee the Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI), a bill requiring all aspiring non-Jewish citizens to pledge loyalty to a Jewish state passed an initial vote and is currently awaiting a full Knesset vote. NIF grantees ACRI and Adalah are now fighting its legality in the High Court, and we continue to oppose the idea that Jewish and non-Jewish Israelis must pledge loyalty to a narrow interpretation of Judaism and Israeli identity. Other legislation, too, sought to undermine Israel’s pluralistic society. The Rotem bill, introduced last summer, would have radically altered the process and consequences of conversion in Israel. For the first time, the ultra-Orthodox Chief Rabbinate in Israel would have N W E S 2010 ANNUAL REPORT NIF.ORG 7 democracy at a crossroads classmates in religious schools, led a contingent of Bedouin women protesting “honor” killings and helped stave off deportations for hundreds of children of migrant workers. The Transportation Ministry finally acknowledged that women could not be forced to sit in the back of public buses, even in ultra-Orthodox neighborhoods. An unlikely coalition of social activists and fiscally responsible government leaders, including Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz, successfully supported a campaign to raise the royalty rate for private energy companies profiting from huge new natural gas fields off Israel’s coast. And NIF President Naomi Chazan, CEO Daniel Sokatch and Israel Executive Director Rachel Liel were recognized as key leaders in their respective communities. The continuing attacks on NIF and civil society engendered some positive results as we worked successfully to turn crisis into opportunity. The profile of our organization, work and grantees was raised exponentially. Thousands of Israelis rallied for democracy and human rights at the second annual International Human Rights Day march in Tel Aviv. More than 1,000 rabbis worldwide, from every Jewish denomination, signed an NIF-initiated letter condemning an ultraOrthodox edict issued in Israel forbidding Jews to sell or rent housing to non-Jews. NIF in Israel launched the “We Will Not Remain Silent” campaign, enlisting bloggers, activists and ordinary Israelis in a viral effort to mobilize the public against repressive legislation and for democratic values. In the U.S., the network of New Israel Fund supporters grew substantially and by every measure—dollars raised, media attention, even Facebook friends—NIF became more visible and influential than ever before. But our work for Israel’s democracy has only just begun. By early 2011, no fewer than 25 proposed bills in the Knesset were in some stage of debate or passage, all of which may compromise freedom of conscience, human rights activities or minority rights. The New Israel Fund family knows that leading an alliance of pro-democracy organizations both in Israel and overseas is now a key component of our work, a natural expansion of our mission and values designed to protect not just our sector but our vision of Israeli society. The coming year will engage us in some of the most significant challenges we have ever faced as an organization. And with your help, we will surmount them, and we will succeed.

N W E S 2010 ANNUAL REPORT NIF.ORG 13 NIF PROJECTS AND PARTNERSHIPS In addition to our work supporting hundreds of civil society organizations, NIF proactively tackles some of the most difficult issues facing Israeli society though projects we sponsor alone or with partners. From expanding the civil rights bar in Israel to fighting racism and teaching civics education, NIF projects are making a real difference. Civil and Human Rights Social Justice Fund—$3,080,000 The Social Justice Fund is a fund established through a grant from the Ford Foundation to promote peace and social justice in Israel. It focuses its grant making within three areas: civil rights and human rights in Israel, equity and equal opportunities for the Palestinian minority within Israel and promoting a peaceful resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Israel-US Civil Liberties Law Program—$207,447 Inaugurated in 1980 in partnership with American University’s Washington College of Law, the program provides academic and professional experience to Israeli lawyers specializing in civil rights. The 50-plus program graduates are the core of the civil rights bar in Israel—as academics, community organizers, founders of non-profit organizations and litigators. New Voices in the Stadium Campaign Against Racism in Soccer—$82,210 NIF’s program has helped reduce racism and violence in Israeli soccer (a notorious arena for anti-Arab incitement) by raising public awareness and successfully advocating for new legislation and law enforcement procedures to crack down on perpetrators. Social and Economic Justice Green Environment Fund—$1,029,100 NIF’s partnership with the Andrea and Charles Bronfman Philanthropies, the Nathan Cummings Foundation, the Samuel Sebba Trust and the Morningstar Foundation aims to protect and preserve Israel’s environment, promote environmental justice and strengthen the country’s environmental movement. NIF/SHATIL Social Justice Fellowships—$123,078 The Social Justice Fellowships enable a cadre of postcollege Jewish young adults to spend 10 months immersed in the movement for social change in Israel. These fellowships place young Jewish activists in Israeli NGOs for a year of in-depth contribution and learning. 14 DEMOCRACY AT THE CROSSROADS NEW ISRAEL FUND Orthodox Women’s Seed Pool—$72,000 The initiative works to create change by advancing the rights and status of Orthodox women by cultivating projects that mobilize women through leadership development, advocacy, and crosssector collaborations. Religious women are creating community-based programs that address the needs of Orthodox girls and women. Projects Public Advocacy Campaign—$566,431 In an increasingly hostile environment, basic democratic rights cannot be taken for granted. NIF is leading a new alliance of organizations determined to protect democratic freedom and basic rights, as well as our own sector of progressive civil society. Our expanded advocacy includes strengthening the constituency for NIF work and ideas through social networks, hosting interactive events and launching short-term advocacy campaigns on specific issues. Carmel Forest Fire Response—$16,000 Following the worst natural disaster in Israel’s history, NIF immediately began mobilizing support and provided emergency grants to secure humanitarian and psychological assistance to the residents of two Druze villages in the area. Now, the NIF family is focusing on prevention, and also mapping long-term recovery needs, coordinating with environmental and social groups to address consequences of the disaster and to ensure fair allocation of resources for all victims—Jews, Arabs, Druze and others. 2010 SHATIL Projects Shatil’s Center for Policy Change (CPC) Bedouin Women In addition to providing consulting and training to social change organizations and campaigns, CPC was instrumental in defeating anti-democratic legislative initiatives aimed at weakening progressive civil society. As a result of Shatil trainings, Bedouin women have been increasing their community activity and entering previously male-dominated arenas such as forums that tackle the problems of Bedouin education and unrecognized villages. For the first time, women took a leading role in ongoing demonstrations against home demolitions in unrecognized Bedouin villages in the Negev. Cutting Edge Capacity Building Shatil’s well-known consulting and training programs for NGOs in organizational and resource development and advocacy and mediawere complemented this year by two new skill-building areas: financial management and social media training. Equalizing Land Rights in Israel’s Mixed Jewish-Arab Cities Shatil continues to empower residents of Israel’s mixed cities to fight for basic housing rights through advocacy for policy change, public advocacy and more. Environmental and Distributive Justice Shatil was at the forefront of the fight to ensure that the public receive its fair share of huge royalties from the new offshore natural gas discoveries. Shatil also continues efforts to ensure public access to Israel’s natural resources and green space. Shared Society Economic and Social Policy Shapers With the second session of this training program, Shatil is adding to the cadre of Israel’s future policy leaders as well as providing a much needed contribution to social change NGOs who get the benefit of the fellows’ experience in economics and politics. In 2010, new initiatives assisted Israeli citizens in gaining access to information about the state budget and their rights. Equality and Dignity for Women in Israel In 2010 Shatil continued to organize and build leadership skills among women in Orthodox, immigrant, Arab Israeli, and Bedouin communities. Shatil is also placing an emphasis in advancing equality and dignity for women in the workplace. Shatil-led Arab-Jewish citizen groups in Haifa and Akko are developing visions for shared living in these mixed cities. Shatil’s Conflict Transformation Management Center also furthers the ideals and principles of a shared society through its Dialogue at Work program at Safed College and the JewishPalestinian Dialogue Initiative with leaders from both communities.
