North West Annual Dinner 2016
On Thursday 29 September, over 500 guests attended the UJIA North West Annual Dinner and Campaign Launch. Special thanks to our main sponsor GCA Altium and our Dinner Chair, Joel Rosenblatt. We are pleased to announce that the dinner raised £828,000.
The guest speaker was Miri Eisen. Miri is one of Israel’s key commentators on geo-politics across the Middle East. She enlightened us on the regional and domestic challenges, “Israel of today is changing and has always been changing, and the challenges faced by the people of Israel are enormous.” Miri applauded the work of UJIA in connecting young people to Israel, as a vital means of strengthening Jewish identity and the much needed contribution to the educational infrastructure of 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.
