On the Ground with Adi: A Virtual Tour Series

Presented in partnership with NIF US, NIF UK, and NIF Australia.

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 Palestinian 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. Watch the full discussions and episodes below OR watch the stand-alone episodes here.

Jaffa with System Ali

System Ali, a binational, multilingual hip-hop collective, takes us to Jaffa to understand the issues facing the “mixed” Palestinian-Jewish city.

Unrecognized Bedouin Villages in the Negev with Sultan Abu Obaid

We travel with Shatil’s Be’er Sheva Director, Sultan Abu Obaid, to his hometown, the partially unrecognized Bedouin village of Lakiya in the Negev to meet the residents on the frontline of the struggle for recognition.

Jordan Valley with Daphne Banai

Adi and Machsom Watch’s Dafna Banai meet with Palestinians living in the occupied Jordan Valley. With dispossession on their doorstep, they struggle just to live on their own land.

Musrara with Reuven Abergel

We go with Reuven Abergel, one of the founders of the Israeli Black Panthers, through his neighbourhood, Musrara. He tells the story of Moroccan and other Sephardi and Mizrahi immigrants to Israel who faced discrimination and marginalization when they arrived.
