UIA NSW has announce a stellar line up for its 2018 Campaign – a year of festivities, with Israel celebrating its 70th anniversary.

General Division and Young Leadership Division events will be headlined by the high-profile lawyer and passionate defender of Israel, Professor Alan Dershowitz.

Dershowitz is well-known as the appellate adviser to O. J. Simpson’s defence team during the O.J. Simpson murder case, and been described as ‘the best-known criminal lawyer in the world’, named America’s most ‘public Jewish Defender’, and ‘the Jewish State’s lead attorney in the court of public opinion.’

He is a scholar of United States constitutional law and criminal law; a leading defender of civil liberties and the Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law, Emeritus, at Harvard Law School.

Additionally, Dershowitz is an acclaimed author, publishing over 1,000 articles, and 35 fiction and non-fiction works, including the best-seller ‘The Case for Israel’.

UIA NSW’s Women’s Division events will be headlined by Ambassador Belaynesh Zevadia – the first Ethiopian Olah to become an ambassador representing Israel and leading Israeli journalist, Alon Ben David.

Supporters will also enjoy some exciting entertainment at all the events.

UIA NSW’s 2018 Campaign will once again focus on support for Israel’s most vulnerable periphery communities.

The Campaign events will be a unique opportunity for the Jewish Community to come together in what should be one of Sydney’s largest gatherings celebrating Israel’s 70th. It is also a way for the Community to make a significant contribution to Israel’s most valuable asset – OUR PEOPLE.

UIA NSW CEO Yair Miller said: “With this line up of speakers next year, our events are sure to sell out. There can be no better person to hear from as we celebrate Israel’s 70th anniversary than her greatest advocate in our generation. I strongly encourage people to book as soon as possible.”

Events will sell out and seating is limited. To book for the NSW General Division event with Alan Dershowitz or for more information, contact (02)9361 4273, or visit
