For the first time, NIF Australia is offering a chance to go behind the headlines of contemporary Israel and have a hands-on experience of Israeli society.

The five-day trip, which is being run with NIF Canada, will meet with grassroots civil rights activists working to make a difference in Israeli society today, as well as a chance to hear from journalists, decision-makers, academics and others working in the social change movement throughout Israel.

“There’s no better way to grasp what’s happening in Israel than to see it for yourself. We see incredible changes happening on the ground and this trip is a way to see it through the lens of democracy, inclusion and justice.”

“Each year we send an incredible group of our New Gen participants to Israel as part of our Naomi Chazan Fellowship. They all come back inspired and optimistic about Israel’s future, because of the amazing people and projects they see. For the first time, we’re offering the trip to a wider audience looking to better understand Israel today,” said NIF Australia Executive Director Liam Getreu.

The tour will expose participants to a broad cross-section of Israeli society with a diverse range of political and ideological views – Orthodox and secular, Jewish and Palestinian, Sephardi and Ashkenazi, liberal and conservative, refugees and veteran Israelis, to explore the internal and external challenges faced by Israeli society today.

The trip will include the chance to visit the separation fence and see up close how it affects the lives of both Israelis and Palestinians, to better understand what life is like for Arab-Israelis in the north, the challenges facing African refugees in south Tel Aviv, the battle for religious freedom being played out at the Kotel and much more.

The trip begins on the morning of Sunday 17 May in Jerusalem and ends on the afternoon of Thursday 21 May in Tel Aviv.
