Acclaimed Israeli actor and singer, Tsahi Halevi from the Netflix series, ‘Fauda’ and multi-award winning film, ‘Bethlehem’ provided guests with a special presentation, combining his colourful personal story through spoken word with musical performances in Hebrew, Arabic and English.

Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) CEO, Dan Rosen facilitated the discussion with Halevi.

Halevi also expressed how important the work of UIA is for the State of Israel.

Guests enjoyed authentic Israeli street food and cocktails by the BarBoys, as well as a video about the Keren Hayesod-UIA project in Israel, Aleh Negev.

All proceeds from the event are going towards Aleh Negev – a facility in Israel for children with severe intellectual and developmental disabilities and medical conditions. They receive advanced medical, educational and rehabilitative care all under the stewardship of Israeli hero, Maj General Doron Almog.

UIA NSW Young Leadership Chair, Joshua Biggs said: “What brings us all together tonight? Whatever your reason might be, there is one unifying fact. There is connective tissue between each and every one of us -that we are Jews living in the diaspora. Being here tonight, we pay tribute and are aware of our connection to Israel in the diaspora.”

“As the State of Israel and its priorities have evolved, we too at UIA have key projects that we support which have evolved. As the next generation in line, we have the responsibility of shaping what the next evolution should be. We are at an exciting place that we have a strong Israel, and can direct our funds to specific initiatives that continue to strengthen the State. “

Halevi is also featuring at a UIA event for Israelis and UIA’s Tikvah and Young Families Division, as well as events in Melbourne and Perth.
