The focal point of the Dinner is the presentation of our Human Rights Awards to some of the exceptional organisations that we support in Israel, and we will hear from them over the course of the evening, which will feature a cocktail reception followed by a delicious three course meal.

This year, we will present awards to:

Sikkuy: Sikkuy’s mission is to promote full equality in all fields and on all levels between Arab-Palestinian citizens of Israel and Jewish citizens. Sikkuy advocates for equal distribution of state resources including budgets, land and services. It works to increase the presence of the language, culture and symbols of Arab citizens of Israel in public spaces, and facilitates Jewish-Arab cooperation. Established in 1991, Sikkuy’s staffing reflects its egalitarian ethos at every level.

Coalition of Asylum Seekers: We have decided to award a joint prize to the three organisations that have taken the lead in fighting the deportation of asylum seekers and are working towards their social integration:

The Hotline for Refugees and Migrants (HRM) was founded in 1998 and is among the leading organisations defending the rights of migrants and refugees in Israel and combating human trafficking. By combining client advocacy with impact litigation, policy initiatives and public outreach, it aims to achieve broad-based, systematic improvements.

ASSAF Aid Organization for Refugees was founded in 2007 in order to aid refugees and asylum seekers in Israel. Its aim is to protect the rights of refugees, most of whom are fleeing Sudan and Eritrea, in their encounters with state authorities. Their flagship activity is to provide psychological and social support.

Achoti: A Mizrachi feminist organisation based in South Tel Aviv, Achoti (My Sister) initiated the Power to the Community project as a collaboration of asylum seekers and veteran residents of South Tel Aviv. The project aims to improve the rights and conditions of these residents on an individual, communal, and environmental level.
