In response to the queries and concerns regarding the current political, social and economic turmoil that has unfolded and heightened recently in South Africa, UIA has coordinated a webinar with key South African communal leaders and experts – ‘South African Jewry in Crisis’, to be held on Wednesday 28 July.

KH-UIA is a global family and a true Jewish international collective, with campaigns in 40 countries and over 60 cities, operating in nine languages across 22 time zones. This means that every UIA donor and supporter is part of a diverse global family with the interests of the People of Israel and broader Jewish world at its heart. Most importantly, it means that we can rely on each other, and Israel, in times of crisis. As UIA Australia CEO Yair Miller OAM said: “When we speak of the Keren Hayesod-UIA global family, we speak of our unique ability to impact on a broad range of national priority projects and our global reach, which is absolutely empowering.”

The South African-based panel of the webinar will include Philip Krawitz – Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the United Jewish Campaign, Rowan Polovin – National Chairman of the South African Zionist Federation and Howard Sackstein – Chairman of the South African Jewish Report. The Australian component will include moderator Jillian Segal AO – President Executive Council of Australian Jewry.

“There is no other organisation in Australia that connects the global Jewish family in the way we do, while supporting Israel’s most critical asset – its People,” President UIA Australia Lance Rosenberg said. “To this end, we hope to understand the extent of the crisis and part that our local community can play in supporting our South African family. In addition, it is imperative that our local community understands the dynamics and facts amongst the barrage of media coverage and speculation on the topic, and we’re confident that this panel of authorities on the matter can provide just that through this important discussion.”
