This is the 9th year the UIA has sponsored the Roots Project at Sydney’s Emanuel School.

A UIA spokesperson said: “We are lucky to be part of a Jewish world and to have at the centre of that world the State of Israel. This Roots project gives students an opportunity to look at where their family fits into this Jewish world-family to which we all belong. There are hundreds of thousands of Jewish children around the world, with parents and grandparents all with fascinating and rich stories. Through this UIA Roots project, students engage in the fascinating journey of finding out these stories.”

The UIA announced the 13 finalists for 2015. Their work will be evaluated by a UIA committee and a winner selected. The winner will receive a $1000 voucher to be used in any future educational program to Israel.
