It’s Ladies Night 2017
UJIA ‘It’s Ladies Night’ returned for its’ second year on Monday, and with it came the launch of a brand new annual award; the Joy Cohen Award for Outstanding Leadership by a Young Woman. Jewish Labour Movement Director, Ella Rose, was announced as the first winner in an Oscar-style awards ceremony. NUS National Executive Committee member, Izzy Lenga, and Zohar Isakov, Graduate of Carmiel Children’s Village, and the Western Galilee College, were both awarded a UJIA Young Leadership Award.
It’s Ladies Night saw over 300 women from across the UK Jewish Community gather at The Montcalm to celebrate the three exceptional young talents, and the newly re-formed UJIA Women’s Division.
The event raised over £165,000 for vital UJIA projects in Israel and the UK; projects just like those that have changed the lives of not only Zohar, Izzy and Ella, but also thousands of beneficiaries across Israel and the UK.
