UIA NSW President Lance Rosenberg said that “the UIA family is thrilled to welcome Yair to our team. He brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and most importantly passion for the State of Israel and her people. With a proven track record working with all sectors of our community and a long history of communal leadership, Yair ensures we can take our organisation to the next level”.

Miller commented that “it will be an absolute privilege and honour to work as part of the team driving the most innovative and effective fundraising organisation in our community working for the benefit of the Israeli people. The UIA occupies a very special place in the hearts and minds of so many members of our community and I look forward to the challenge of further strengthening those ties.”

Harold Finger, Federal President of UIA said that he was “excited to see UIA NSW taking this important step and appointing somebody of such calibre. Yair will continue to ensure UIA remains the leading organisation supporting Israel and her people here in Australia.”

Miller is Immediate Past President of the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies, Vice President of the Executive Council of Australian Jewry and ran the Jewish Emergency Management plan for 8 years. He sits on the Board of the Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture and is a Community Board Member of the NSW State Parole Authority. In 2011 the Sydney Morning Herald named him as one of the 50 most powerful people in NSW and the Australian Jewish News named him one of the 50 most influential Jews in Australia.

UIA’s primary focus remains on funding absorption and integration of some of Israel’s most vulnerable citizens and providing them with genuine life changing educational opportunities.

Miller’s appointment was announced at the organisation’s Annual General Meeting.
