Experiencing Israel firsthand will always be a priority for the UIA.

Beneficiaries of KH-UIA projects visited by participants of Israel Missions.

In the past, the nine-day Israel Mission provided UIA supporters with opportunities that one wouldn’t be able to have when travelling to Israel alone. By providing an in-depth journey to see Israel in an unprecedented way, with unique insights into its complex political and security situation and providing opportunities to visit historical and cultural sites, UIA Israel Missions became a ‘must’ on the UIA calendar. Most importantly, its missions gave supporters the opportunity to witness the importance of the UIA’s contribution to the social fabric and gain an understanding of how funds raised are used to uplift our brothers and sisters in Israel.

When Coronavirus changed the world and brought travel to a halt, UIA had to pivot in order to make sure that its connection to Israel and its supporters remained at the forefront of its minds and hearts despite the challenges that it faced. Our Virtual Missions, therefore, came about as a way to ensure that this link remained intact. Our last UIA Virtual Mission gave participants the same incredible ‘peek behind the curtain’ that few other tours could provide, including a visit to Hezbollah tunnels and the Gaza border as well as KH-UIA projects that we support, The Dead Sea and of course Jerusalem.

Due to popular demand, UIA will once again be providing a Virtual Mission for supporters to see and connect with Israel like never before. This time, participants will get to hear from Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Idan Roll, feel immersed in the colours and sounds of the Shuk, get a look at threats along the Egyptian border and hear firsthand from UIA beneficiaries. This not-to-be-missed virtual event will be spread across two evenings – Monday 18 and Sunday 24 October – and your $50 donation will go towards UIA projects visited. To book, go to
