Israel holds a central part in our lives. We have a responsibility to those who built the State to continue to support and strengthen it in the future.

By leaving a legacy gift through UJIA each of us can honour the generations of the past and create a lasting imprint for those of the future.

Remembering UJIA in your will, will improve the lives of children and young adults both in Israel and here in the UK. Long into the future, your impact will be felt on people who, in many cases, are not even born yet. However, when you include UJIA in your will, the effect will also be felt a lot closer to home.

By leaving a legacy in your will, you are not only reaffirming the value of charity – tzedakah – that you have actioned throughout your life, you are going one step further. You are making these acts of kindness part of your eternal memory.

Leaving a legacy to UJIA will create a connection between you and the people of Israel that will last forever.

To find out more about how your legacy can create a connection for the future of UK Jewry and the people of Israel, please call Elliot Shorrick on 020 7424 6416 or email

The impact of a legacy

During his lifetime, Gerald Crossman scaled the heights of the music world, playing alongside showbiz greats including Charlie Chaplin, Morecambe & Wise and even Marlene Dietrich. Yet it was after his death that he made perhaps his most life-changing impact.

Gerald left a legacy gift to UJIA, used to support young children living on Israel’s periphery. The donation enabled children like Guy at Carmiel Children’s Village, to have a new start, away from a life of abuse and poverty. This opportunity would not have been possible were it not for the generosity of Gerald Crossman.
