Keynote speakers included former Israeli ambassador to the United States, Itamar Rabinovich and Kerne-Hayesod World Chairman Moodi Sandberg.

Rabinovich delivered an analysis on the current situation and recent event in the Middle East and speculated on what the future holds for Israel.

Sandberg expressed his deep appreciation to the NSW Community for their ongoing support of Israel through the UIA and spoke about the new partnership between the Israeli government and Keren Hayesod-UIA, working together to fund Israel’s national priorities.

He told the audience of when he was sworn in as a Minister for the Government of Israel his father, a holocaust survivor who escaped Nazi Europe, said during the war he would never have been able to imagine one day he would have a son who would be a minister for the Jewish State. Sandberg said nothing in this world is for certain but he believes as long as the gates of Jerusalem stay open the gates of Auschwitz will stay closed – and this is what KH-UIA is all about.

The contributions raised through the UIA go towards supporting the State of Israel’s vital needs including saving Jewish life, Aliyah and absorption as well as strengthening Israel’s social and geographical periphery through the various projects funded by KH-UIA.
