JCC The Safe Space: Asylum in Israel

Join Ellen Goldberg, director New Israel Fund UK, Nikki Levitan, volunteer with Darfuris in Israel, and David Brown from Aegis Trust, discussing the UK and Israel’s treatment of Darfuri asylum seekers.

The Safe Space is a series of workshops developed by the JCC and JCORE and led by people who work in the fields of immigration and asylum. Come along, get involved and join the discussion.

Over the past year Israel has been dealing with the challenge of asylum in a way that it has never had to before. Hundreds of survivors of the genocide in Darfur have been flooding over the Egyptian-Israeli border. As a country famous for its integration of people from all over the world and one which has had to deal with the legacy of the Holocaust, the situation presents a complex challenge to the state. Ellen Goldberg, director of the New Israel Fund UK and Nikki Levitan, volunteer with Bnei Darfur in Israel, will be in conversation with David Brown from the Aegis Trust, discussing the differences and similarities in the way the UK and the State of Israel are dealing with asylum seekers from Darfur and considering whether Israel has a unique responsibility to these people.
