UIA Victoria held its Super Sunday fundraising campaign recently raising much-needed funds to support aliyah.

In just six hours, the community generously contributed the funds needed to enable 50 people to make aliyah.

The demand for people wishing to make aliyah has increased dramatically and this trend is set to continue. There are several reasons for this, including the global pandemic and its associated economic uncertainties; rising anti-Semitism; and Israel being one of the only countries to encourage immigration during the pandemic.

Despite increased costs, UIA continues to respond to the increase in demand for aliyah. The aliyah process currently requires greater intensive care and funding, particularly due to the quarantine and absorption process for new immigrants.

“We are proud that our Super Sunday was run in an environmentally friendly way, with the entire campaign being managed online and predominantly by our dedicated volunteers. This saves time, cost and resources, enabling us to contribute more funds to our life-changing projects, including aliyah,” UIA Victoria CEO Jeff Feldman said.

UIA’s ability to adapt its methods of engagement and processes to complement the expectations of donors and the needs of beneficiaries highlights our commitment to supporting the People of Israel and enabling every Jew to come home to Israel without delay.
