Highlights from the 2018
Guardian of Democracy Dinner

Well over four hundred people — friends, donors, and allies — gathered in San Francisco, for NIF’s annual Guardian of Democracy Dinner, to show their support for Israelis working to promote democracy in Israel. They raised more money this year than they ever have before.

NIF is growing!

At the dinner, prominent professor David N. Meyers was announced as the new president of NIF’s board, taking over for acclaimed attorney Talia Sasson, the keynote speaker of the evening.

In her speech Talia said, “I believe that today, caring for Israel’s democracy is just as important as caring for its existence.”

The event honored Serra Falk Goldman, in memory of NIF board member William S. Goldman (z”l). It also honored rising New Generations’ leader Michael Brodsky and highlighted one of our trailblazers on the ground, Dr. Mushira Aboo Dia, as this year’s Gallanter Prize winner for her work as Chair of Physicians for Human Rights – Israel.
