UJIA is firmly committed to facilitating educational and engagement opportunities for the whole family, in order to develop informed, confident Jews who are inspired by Israel.
As part of this, we partner both nationally and regionally to provide innovative in-person and virtual Family Programming.
Our aim is to provide creative and fun opportunities for families to learn and enjoy together while engaging with their developing Jewish identities and links to Israel. For further information on our work with families, please contact Melanie Kelly, Head of Children and Families at firstname.lastname@example.org.
