UJIA (United Jewish Israel Appeal)

Economic Development in the Galil, northern Israel

The future of the Israeli economy in the periphery depends on the success of small businesses. Many of these, struggle to get bank loans and so the UJIA is partnering with the Portland Trust and the Koret Foundation to guarantee these loans. In addition, we support the mentoring of the small businesses we work with as well as providing additional support for their work.

The UJIA's strategy is designed to help guarantee a sustainable and postive future for the people of the Galil and the Jewish community of the UK. Our programme is built around young people and education, which we see as the key to securing our future. We believe that the future of Israel and the Jewish Diaspora are dependent upon each other and that the UJIA creates the living bridge between our communities.
