UJIA prides itself on finding innovative and exciting way to engage young people with Israel. 

We do this partly through providing educational resources for schools, families, shuls and the wider community.

We hope you enjoy and find what we have on offer to be of interest.  If you would like any more information about the educational work of the UJIA, please contact Melanie Kelly, Head of Children and Families Education at melanie.kelly@ujia.org.

PROGRAMME DESCRIPTION
YOM YERUSHALYIM 2021

Celebrate Yom Yerushalayim with this selection of resources for primary aged children in schools, synagogues, community centres and with family at home. This important day in the calendar celebrates our long and special relationship with the Holy City.
GREAT SHAVUOT PARTY PRIMARY RESOURCE PACK 2021

Shavuot in Biblical times was always an opportunity for Jews from all over the world to gather together in Jerusalem to offer their harvests at the Temple. For the second year in a row, we still can’t travel as much as we would wish to celebrate Shavuot, but this resource will help you feel that bit closer.
