Mickey Gitzin, New Israel Fund’s new Executive Director in Israel

Join us Saturday, October 21, during services.  Mickey Gitzin is the newly-appointed Executive Director of the New Israel Fund in Israel. Mickey also serves as a city council member in Tel Aviv-Jaffa, where he chairs committees for diversity and public housing. He is also the Mayor’s advisor for global development and innovation.
Mickey will speak about the current situation in Israel vis-a-vis religious pluralism, the Western Wall disputes, among other issues at stake for non-Orthodox Jews in Israel.

Prior to joining NIF, Mickey was the founding director of “Israel Hofsheet” (Be Free Israel), a leading grassroots organization fighting for separation of religion and state in Israel. In 2013, Mickey received NIF UK’s Human Rights Award, and in 2015, NIF’s Gallanter Prize for Emerging Israeli Social Justice Leaders.

Mickey will speak at approximately 11:20 AM, during the service.  This Shabbat will also feature our Hiddur music service and Community Shir for the entire community at noon.
