UJIA focus our fundraising in Israel to connect and assist the young and youth in the disadvantaged Galil Region of Northern Israel.  We support Programmes and projects that encourage coexistence in the Region where half of the population are Jewish and the other half are Arab, Muslin and Druze.  We are giving Israeli children “hope” for the future despite the difficult economic, social and political climate that they are growing up in.

Here in Scotland, we are dedicated to ensuring a Jewish Future.  We run JAMS (Jewish Activities in Mainstream Schools) sessions at five schools, encouraging the highest standards in both formal and informal Jewish Education, from early years through to adult learning programmes. We also assist the youth movements with leadership courses and with funding. We run many exciting and varied Programmes aimed at building a living bridge to connect the young and youth in Scotland with their counterparts in Israel.
