On the Ground with Adi: Virtual Tour Series
February 2 - February 23
Join us each Wednesday in February as Adi Tufik, NIF’s Head of Donor Relations in Israel, takes us behind the scenes to dive into the issues people across Israel and the occupied territories face. From Bedouin towns in the Negev to the occupied Jordan Valley, from rapidly changing Jaffa to the Musrara neighbourhood of Jerusalem, Adi visits specific places and speaks with activists on the frontlines of the fight for justice. These virtual tours provide a window into issues often overlooked by visitors to Israel.
