We Share the Pride. We Share the Responsibility.

The United Israel Appeal (UIA) is the Australian arm of Keren Hayesod, the leading partnership between Israel and Diaspora communities since 1920. Recognized in Australia as a Refugee Reliefstudent-scholership Fund (RRF), UIA mobilizes support for Israel and the rescue of Jews in distress, by encouraging and assisting in aliyah and absorption into Israeli society, together with the Jewish Agency for Israel.

UIA saves Jewish lives, strengthens Jewish identity, fortifies the fabric of Israeli society and reinforces solidarity within the Jewish people. Keren Hayesod – United Israel Appeal is the central fundraising organization for Israel throughout the world (except USA), based in Jerusalem.

It operates in 46 countries on every continent through 58 campaigns under the terms of the “Keren Hayesod Law, 1956” passed by the Knesset.
