United Israel Appeal Victoria is Located in the Beth Weizmann Community Centre - the Zionist heart of Victoria. Our members and volunteers work to ease the suffering of Israel's most valuable asset - OUR PEOPLE.
Since 1956, UIA Victoria has played a pivotal role in the development and strengthening of Israel by investing in long-term solutions for successfully integrating its immigrants, through many fundraising initiatives, events and community outreach programs in Victoria. As a result, we have assisted tens of thousands of people who were in poverty, built entire towns and villages; and helped educate both Israelis and Australians.
The people of Israel and Victoria maintain a common bond that has been forged in fire. As Israel has faced one seemingly insurmountable hurdle after another; the people of Victoria - through UIA have been there with them. From supporting new immigrants, youth at risk and lone soldiers; to building bomb shelters, UIA Victoria has ensured that Israel’s most important asset, her people are able to continue living a normal life despite constant threats to her existence.
Yet, our work impacts the people at home as much as it does abroad. For years, UIA Victoria has been a staple within the Jewish Community. Our Roots Project - a genealogical assignment which gives year 7 and 8 students a greater understanding of their family, has helped countless children expand their understanding of who they are. Through our various divisions, such as General Division, Women's Division and YoungUIA, we have ensured that every member of the Community is able to play a part in the vital work of UIA.
UIA Victoria has a cherished history with Israel that we are proud of. Today, thanks to our staff and volunteers, we are looking towards the future and we want you to be a part of it.
