North East Annual Dinner 2016
On Wednesday 28 September, almost 230 guests attended the UJIA North East Annual Dinner and Campaign Launch, generously sponsored by Marilyn and Grahame Stowe together with Marcia and Andrew Brown, and chaired by Martin Harris. We are pleased to announce that the dinner raised £230,000.
The guest speaker was Colonel Richard Kemp CBE. Describing himself as, “a friend of Israel”, his impassioned speech inspired the audience to remain resolute in support for the people of Israel. Citing his concern for diminishing Jewish identity among young people, he applauded the work of UJIA in connecting young people to Israel as a vital means of strengthening Jewish identity and continuing involvement with Israel.
As the UK’s leading Israel charity, UJIA also used the event to share its redefined vision – Our Israel. Our Future. UJIA has refined its mission to better meet the needs of our community in the UK and vulnerable communities in Israel.
