Stephanie is the Director of NIF's New York / Tri-State region.

 

I am writing to you from Jerusalem, where I am spending the month with my family while working in NIF’s Israel office. It has been a difficult week for us and for our children, as it has been for everyone in the region.

On June 1, tens of thousands of New Yorkers will gather for the annual Celebrate Israel Parade. As in previous years, we at the New Israel Fund (NIF) will be there, leading a group of progressive, pro-Israel activists. We will take our rightful place alongside the many others dedicated to the Israel that is, as well as the Israel that ought to be.
