The evening acknowledged our major donors and table captains and was generously hosted in the home of Rosie Lew.

Rosie spoke about her passion for philanthropy and the importance of women taking an active role in giving. She applauded the Women’s Division Executive for their hard work in delivering a successful campaign and engaging the next generation of women in philanthropy.  She also reflected on her recent journey to Russia as part of the UIA ILR conference and some of her observations about the Jewish community there.

Kfir Damari, an Israeli entrepreneur and engineer shared his journey of being part of the first team in the world to create a privately funded spacecraft and send it to the moon. He also spoke about his vision to empower today’s children to have an interest in space and entrepreneurship.

The event highlighted the 2019 achievements and officially launched the 2020 centennial campaign. For the first time, we will be collaborating with Women’s Division campaigns around the world to bring a panel of preeminent Israeli women who have achieved huge success within their fields with stories of passion.

In honour of Keren Hayesod-UIA’s centennial, the Executive made a strategic decision to support a new milestone initiative and a program which resonates with the values of the new Women’s Division Executive – Professions for Life.
