United Israel Appeal will launch its 2020 Campaign at events in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth in November with guest speakers Sam Grundwerg – World Chairman Keren Hayesod-UIA and Amira Ahronoviz –  CEO & Director General of the Jewish Agency.

Grundwerg and Ahronoviz will speak at UIA NSW’s Campaign Launch and AGM on 18 November and North Shore Briefing* on 19 November; UIA Victoria’s AGM on 20 November and UIA Western Australia’s Major Donor event on 24 November.

The events will launch the extra-special Campaign for UIA, as 2020 marks 100 years of the organisation’s support for the People of Israel. The centennial will be celebrated throughout the year; from the main Campaign events to many more exciting gatherings and initiatives planned for all ages.

From 2016 to 2018, Grundwerg served as Consul General of Israel in Los Angeles.  Prior to this, he was Director-General in Israel for the World Jewish Congress, an international organisation representing Jewish communities in over 100 countries. At the WJC Grundwerg advanced the overall mission to strengthen and support Jewish communities around the world, as well as the State of Israel and the Jewish People.

Ahronoviz has been working at The Jewish Agency for over 22 years in various roles. This year, she was appointed the first-ever female CEO and Director-General. As an outcome of her vast research, Ahronoviz and The Jewish Agency team are currently developing Crowd.IL, a digital platform that would both address economic gaps in Israeli society and advance The Jewish Agency’s strategic goal of connecting world Jewry to Israel.

UIA CEO Yair Miller said: “This has been another exceptional year for UIA and our mission to strengthen and empower the People of Israel. As we move into our centennial year of providing our community’s most critical bridge to the State and People of Israel, we encourage the community to attend these events and hear from outstanding speakers. We will also announce our spectacular line up of speakers for next year’s Gala events,”
