Join Us

Please join the New Israel Fund in celebrating four decades of progressive social change in Israel at our Guardian of Democracy Anniversary Dinner on Sunday, September 22, 2019 at the Four Seasons Hotel in San Francisco. Gather with community as we honor passionate and committed social justice leaders and activists from Israel and the U.S. Together, we will strengthen NIF’s work for civil and human rights, religious freedom and tolerance, and social justice for all of Israel’s citizens, as we look towards the next forty years.

This year we are proud to feature incredible honorees and speakers who have devoted their lives to fighting for justice. It is our privilege to honor NIF’s inspired leader and CEO Daniel Sokatch for his decade of leadership (and counting)! We are also excited to recognize dedicated activist and supporter Laura Saunders as this year’s New Generations honoree. Last but not least, it is our great pleasure to present legendary social justice leader, Ruth Messinger, as this year’s keynote speaker.

For questions and more information, please contact us.

We look forward to sharing the evening with you!
