“Whilst this year has thrown up its fair share of challenges, it has also enabled many opportunities and driven innovation. UIA has become a leader in connecting our community to Israel in virtual and other tangible ways. Join us to hear about the incredible year that has passed and our exciting plans for the future,” UIA CEO Yair Miller said.
