UJIA Centre for Israel Engagement
Bringing Israel to life for the next generation
Israel as inspiration
The UJIA Centre for Israel Engagement has been launched to help bring Israel to life for a new generation of British Jews. It is our in-house hub of expertise in Israel education, providing UJIA and our partners with educational support, cutting-edge programming, training and high-level planning.
We work with youth movements, Jewish schools, UJS and Jewish students on campus, synagogue movements and other communal organisations to help them transform their Israel Engagement thinking and educational practice.
The Centre also commissions research and produces analysis to help educational leaders move Israel education forward within their organisations. We bring thought leaders and practitioners together to learn from each other, and offer training to upgrade the community’s educational expertise. We import best practice from the rest of the Jewish world and help design bespoke programming for special Israel educational opportunities, including the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration in 2017.
The Centre also runs UJIA’s flagship programme for Sixth Formers: UJIA Israel Fast Track. To find out more, please click here.
