UIA has announced its plans for its 2021 Gala events in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane introducing a concept which is novel, intriguing and aimed to accommodate every member of our community.

Tzipi Livni

Introducing UIA’s version of TEDx on Tuesday 23 February, where members of the community can join us in person in Sydney and Melbourne or stream online to experience an evening of live panel discussions with renowned Israelis from a variety of fields. You choose which session/s you’d like to attend, with something for everyone. Topics range from Israeli politics, security and innovation; to the Israeli food scene, futurism and Abraham Accords and antisemitism in the Arab world.

Guest speakers include Dan Ariely – author, Chief Behavioural Economist and professor; Tzipi Livni – former Foreign Minister of Israel; Dan Meridor – former Deputy Prime Minister of Israel, Moshe ‘Bogie’ Ya’Alon – Israeli politician, former Chief of Staff of IDF and Former Defence Minister of Israel; Marcus Sheff – CEO of non-profit IMPACT-se and former political reporter; and Meir Adoni – celebrity chef and restaurateur.

All speakers will be streamed in live.

UIA NSW’s in-person event will include complimentary food, live music and more.

UIA VIC’s in-person event will also include complimentary Israeli snacks and live music.

Attendees at both venues will have the opportunity to join two panel discussions for the rate of a single session.

“We understand that everybody has different comfort levels at this turbulent time and feel strongly about the importance of providing these two options, to enable everyone the opportunity to support the People of Israel and feel a part of our global UIA Family,” UIA CEO Yair Miller OAM said.

“We look forward to seeing you at our 2021 Gala events, whether it’s physically or virtually. We hope you will take up our offer and ensure our community comes together, to show our solidarity and unwavering partnership for our brothers and sisters in Israel.”

Tickets are strictly limited for each session at the in-person events and bookings are encouraged as soon as possible.

Attendees can choose to book one session per time slot but can register for both time slots.

UIA WA is hosting its 2021 Gala event on 23 March with keynote speaker The Hon John Howard at Optus Stadium.

The in-person events in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth will be held in accordance with the current COVID guidelines as outlined by the State Governments.
