Check out these amazing upcoming events and resources being offered by UJIA, our partners and our friends to deepen your connection to Israel.

A Virtual Tour for Yom Yerushalayim

Today is Yom Yerushalayim, when we celebrate the reunification of Jerusalem. Yesterday we brought together primary students from across the UK to hear from Shlomo Kashi, one of the liberators of the Kotel in 1967, and hosted an evening kumzitz with Avi Kraus and Effie Samet. Feel like you’re right there with this Jerusalem 360 Tour, which lets you navigate the stone alleyways and beautiful parks of Jerusalem!
