ABOUT JIJ

More than an Organization

The mission of the Jerusalem Institute of Justice is to identify and address the challenges faced by marginalized individuals and communities, and to advocate for their rights and well-being. We share our common heart for justice, expose injustice, and speak out for those whose voices have been silenced. We work with the legal system, community partners, and people like you to promote human rights, defend democracy, and improve the overall quality of life in Israel and the Middle East.

OUR WORK

JIJ, is a legal and research, UN recognized organization, founded in 2004 to cultivate and defend rule of law, human rights, freedom of conscience, and democracy.

1700 + families, individuals, and organizations have received our legal assistance. JIJ has won 25 petitions before Israel’s Supreme Court and presented 27 in-depth human rights reports and numerous memos to international governing bodies and tribunals, to safeguard freedoms and the legitimate standing of the State of Israel among the nations.

Our research and advocacy have positively impacted over 10 million lives globally.

OUR STORY

From JIJ’s beginning, we vowed to provide the very best legal services and promote initiatives that bring justice to Israel and the region. Today, we have a leading legal department serving religious minorities. We have succeeded in breaking the vicious cycle of human trafficking and prostitution — through legislative change. And together, we are transforming international human rights activism and policy making. It is your generosity and belief in our mission that enables us to perform this work, and we are deeply grateful for your partnership.

OUR TEAM

JIJ’s dream team is composed of women and men of diverse backgrounds, working together and using their strengths to serve those in need. Our passionate, knowledgeable, and professional staff effectively educate and advocate for victims of repressive policies in our region.

“We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented. Sometimes we must interfere. When human lives are endangered, when human dignity is in jeopardy, national borders and sensitivities become irrelevant.”  – Elie Wiesel
