UJIA’s strategy is designed to help guarantee a sustainable and positive future for the people of the Galil and the Jewish community in the UK.
Our programme is built around young people and education, which we see as the key to securing our future. UJIA’s Informal Education Department delivers training and education to Jewish youth movements, young people in mainstream and Jewish schools, mentoring and development programmes for young people.
UJIA Israel Experience is our flagship programme, connecting young Jewish people to their heritage and heartland. We fund Summer Tour, Gap Years and Birthright.
Every year more than 2,500 of our young people visit Israel on a dedicated educational programme. In conjunction with this, we run the UJIA Jewish Life Education Centre (JLEC), the home of informal Jewish education. We provide resources for inspiring young people to engage with Jewish life, heritage and Israel. We work with the Jewish Youth Movements and the Union of Jewish Students (UJS).
We also fund a number of young adult educational initiatives including Limmud. Our educational work in the UK also includes our Educational Leadership programme, developing a complete programme of Jewish education through teacher training, curriculum and professional development of the very highest standard.
