Sweden–Israel Friendship Association
The Sweden–Israel Friendship Association (Swedish: Samfundet Sverige-Israel) is a left-wing Swedish-based organization which describes its purpose as to "establish and increase knowledge about – and the understanding of – Israel in Sweden, and in different ways work to strengthen Swedish–Israeli bonds of friendship."
The Sweden–Israel Friendship Association established its first local branch in Stockholm in 1953. The founding was marked with an appeal written by Hugo Valentin, Swedish historian, in the Swedish parliament building on May 8. In 1954 local branches were also established in Gothenburg and Malmö. The nationwide association was established in 1978.
