UJA's Walk with Israel on May 26thPosted on May 1, 2013 10:56am
By participating in this year’s UJA Walk with Israel, you are proudly declaring to the world-at-large your support for, and love of, the people of Israel.
Funds raised through the Walk with Israel support a number of UJA’s ongoing, transformative programs and initiatives throughout the Jewish state, including the immigration and absorption of new olim (new immigrants), as well as programs that benefit vulnerable communities in Sderot, Bat Yam and Eilat.
Dollars raised through the Walk go towards:
- Reducing social gaps and providing educational opportunities for at-risk youth in Bat Yam through after-school activities and educational enrichment initiatives.
- Increasing social mobility and economic independence for poverty-stricken Ethiopian Israelis in Bat Yam through professional and vocational training in various lines of work, including nursing, early childhood education, bookkeeping and more.
- Higher education and programs for young people in Israel’s southern region of Eilat/Eilot, including career development and teaching future generations about renewable energy and sustainable development.
- Urgent social welfare and educational projects for residents of the beleaguered city of Sderot, which has endured unprecedented rocket attacks over the past decade.
