SAVING JEWISH LIVES


MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN ESTHER FRENKIEL & THE PRESIDENT SHLOMO WERDIGER As we mark 90 years since the establishment of Keren Hayesod – UIA, we reflect on a busy year of campaign events, canvassing activities, missions to Israel, open forums and boardroom lunches. We have seen the wonderful dedication and commitment to the State of Israel from the Melbourne Jewish Community which has resulted in another successful Victorian Campaign. We would like to pay tribute to the generosity of our donors and volunteers for both their time and their contributions to our cause which reflects a community with Israel in its heart and soul. We have recently farewelled Meir Buber who served as the Executive Director and Shaliach for the past 4 years. We now look forward to welcoming our new Shlichim David Metzler and Amit Tzur-Tal who will soon commence their term in the Victorian office. Leading up to the festival of Chanukah, we would like to take this opportunity to emphasise the importance of our community uniting in support for the State of Israel amidst much anti-Israel vilification in the media to ensure that Israel remains strong and like the flame of Chanukah, stands upright and proud, year after year. Wishing you and your families a Chanukah Sameach and a safe summer and we look forward to seeing you at our 2011 Campaign events.

MESSAGE FROM THE NEW SHLICHIM DAVID METZLER & AMIT TZUR-TAL

Dear UIA Friends, Shalom. It is our sincere pleasure and honour to be writing our very first greeting to you from Israel. We are both about to embark on a mission, with our families, to Melbourne on behalf of one of the most important and central organizations tirelessly working for the strengthening of the State of Israel; Keren Hayesod - UIA. Having visited Melbourne in the past, we are certain that our work with you will be most fruitful. Melbourne offers Jewish life like no other Diaspora community in our opinion. Your community is very strong and you are leading lives with a real sense of responsibility for securing your own Jewish continuity, as well as an outstanding commitment to the State of Israel. Coming from differing backgrounds, we bring very different kinds of experience with us to Australia. We believe that these differences will make us a successful team in accomplishing the tasks ahead. We are looking forward, with excitement and pride, to be working with the fantastic Melbourne Jewish Community, and specifically you as supporters, volunteers, and leaders of UIA Victoria. As we approach Chanukah we are filled with a feeling of light, optimism and hope. We belong to a giving people, and with your support we know that those in Israel in the biggest need for help – the disadvantaged youth, the struggling new Olim, and many more – will live to see a time when light will win the day. We are expecting our work to be challenging and highly fascinating, and we can think of no finer job than to work for the betterment of Israel. Both of us are very much looking forward to seeing you soon in Australia. Happy Chanukah!

FEATURES PM Netanyahu Signs Statement of Cooperation with Keren Hayesod Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently signed a statement of cooperation with Keren Hayesod regarding several projects of national importance. The statement is designed to strengthen and ratify the historic cooperation between Keren Hayesod donors and the State of Israel and express appreciation for their 90 years’ of contributing to the Zionist enterprise. Leading the projects that Keren Hayesod will support is the Prime Minister’s Office project regarding national heritage sites. Keren Hayesod have taken it upon itself

to raise funds in order to supplement the Government budget and expand the scope of the project. Keren Hayesod leaders have also expressed their willingness to consider the possibility of taking part in the project to find alternatives to petroleum.

world and the State of Israel. I am pleased to continue this welcome cooperation and ask that Keren Hayesod continue to enlist world Jewish communities in support of the projects that are important to the State of Israel.”

Prime Minister Netanyahu said that he ascribes great importance to the cooperation. “On behalf of the Government of Israel, I would like to thank you for the assistance that you have rendered to the State of Israel over the decades. Keren Hayesod serves as a living bridge between the millions of Jews around the

interview with the Chairman of the World Board of Trustees of Keren hayesod Johanna Arbib-Perugia Johanna Arbib-Perugia has been involved with Keren Hayesod - UIA since she was a teenager and was appointed as head of the Board of Trustees last year. She was recently interviewed by the Jerusalem Post and the following are some excerpts: What is your biggest challenge as Chair of Keren Hayesod?

Johanna Arbib-Perugia

Source: Jerusalem Post For full article visit www.kh-uia.org.il

People have to realize that giving to an organization like Keren Hayesod means that we are going to be here, that our children are going to have that strong identity that people who were born before Israel’s creation have, while people of my generation and the generations after me think Israel is a given.

Our real strength is that today there is a State of Israel so we have a responsibility toward the State of Israel, and this message should be transmitted in the widest sense of the word. This is our challenge, to try to modernize Keren Hayesod in order to be able to obtain not only the money but also the involvement of important Jews who today are far from the activity, community and Israel.

10 to 15 years has been focused on aliyah, education and helping vulnerable populations. Today we are modernizing the Jewish Agency, we are bringing it into the 21st century and we want to focus on the next generation, on the Jewish identity of the generation that is today in its teens and 20s.

What do you see as Keren Hayesod’s mission today?

We are working on projects like Ayalim, for example, which are student villages in the Negev and Galilee, where Israeli students help settle these areas which are unfortunately less settled. We are trying to instill in the young generation of Israelis the ideas of social activism.

To strengthen the State of Israel mainly. I have to say that we are the strategic partner of the Jewish Agency, therefore most of our effort is concentrated on funding the core budget of the Jewish Agency, which for the last

MAIN APPEAL MESSAGE FROM THE AMI CHAIRMAN JEFF MEYER In the last week of October I took part in a fundraising cycling trip from Jerusalem to Eilat through the Negev and in particular the Arava where UIA Australia has entered into Partnership 2000 with the residents of this region. It was an amazing experience and I look forward to doing it again. Riding through Israel seeing the magnificent sites and work that we at UIA contribute to really invigorated me in preparation for the 2011 Campaign. I call upon all AMI supporters to get behind UIA in helping us continue to do the vital work we are doing in Israel. Whether you are able to assist us by being a table captain or attending the Gala Dinner or by phone or face-to face canvassing, we value any support you are able to provide. Wishing you a Chanukah Sameach.

Jeff Meyer AMI Chairman UIA Victoria

UIA PROGRESSIVE TRUST For the UIA Progressive Trust, nothing describes our fundraising efforts more than the spirit of the ‘Festival of Light’Chanukah. We believe that our annual campaign of “re-dedication” to the State of Israel reflects this in a number of ways. We believe that we provide light and sustenance to the refugees and migrants arriving in Israel without education or resources. The Progressive Trust helps fund absorption centres where some of the most needy and neglected people are nourished and integrated. The Trust offers support to the growing Progressive community in its work to reach out to those in need. Most people know that immense Government funding goes

to support and fund religious institutions in Israel. However, many don’t realise that Progressive Judaism is not recognized in Israel and, as a result, no funding whatsoever goes to Progressive or Conservative congregations to establish synagogues or employ rabbis. We are all justly proud of Israel’s democracy but often overlook the fact that many of these human rights are the result of legal battles fought by the Progressive movement via the Israel Religious Action Centre (IRAC) on behalf of the entire population. IRAC is part of the Israel Movement for Progressive Judaism and has recently been centrally involved in fighting the proposed changes to the Law of Conversion and Law of Return;

opposing the segregation of the public bus system; defending the ‘Women of the Wall’, securing funding for GLBT facilities, and fighting religious and social discrimination. Therefore, while celebrating this Chanukah please remember that Israel actually needs your financial and moral support now as much as ever before. In order to ensure that the Jewish State is the democratic and pluralistic society dreamed of by its founders, described in its Declaration of Independence and longed for by most Jews, including those living in Israel please support the UIA and consider a special designation to the Progressive Trust. Chag Sameach

SCHOOL EDUCATION Jewish day schools acknowledged at Ben Yakir Youth Village A plaque has been erected at the Ben Yakir Youth Village acknowledging the students of The King David School – Southwick Campus, and Mount Scopus Memorial College

Gandel Besen Campus for their fundraising efforts. Every Shabbat, the students placed a coin in the UIA “Sponsor a Child” tins placed in their classrooms

throughout 2009 and ’10 in order to support the youth village that teaches Israeli ‘at-risk’ and disadvantaged youth about responsibility and respect for each other.

YACHAD message from the new co-chairs Ben Cowen & Peter Rubinstein We have recently taken on the challenging yet exciting position as co-chairs of the United Israel Appeal “Yachad Division”. Having been involved in UIA for many years, we are thrilled to be a part of this ‘new’ group within the UIA family. ‘Yachad’ is the link between Young UIA and the Main Appeal Division, attracting people aged between 35 and 50. This group was formed two years ago by Mark Kessel (who worked heroically in launching this initiative) to fill a void in community coverage and has traditionally focused on networking within the corporate and business world, ‘Yachad Networks’. In addition, we are excited to announce ‘Yachad Family’, which will engage with and expose young families to the work of the UIA. We want to provide this demographic with family-friendly events, such as BBQs, farm events with horse rides, local Israel experiences for kids entering bar-mitzvah age and Purim functions with whole families in fancy dress. The aim is to introduce the practice of ‘pledging as a family’, so parents can show their kids what tzedakah is and what Israel means to them. By involving the children in the process of ‘giving’, we hope to continue strengthening Israeli society. Stay tuned for the launch of this new initiative in early 2011 and please feel free to call the UIA office if you would like to get involved in the Yachad division.

PARTNERSHIP 2000 Leadership Academy (“mechina”) An Israeli Mechina (Academy) for social leadership in the Central Arava Region was established and funded 2 years ago by the Partnership in order to instill values of Judaism and Zionism, contribution to the State and the community, working the land, preserving the environment, promoting humanism and equality and respect for all. Targeted at year 12 graduates interested in postponing their

army service for a year, this college prepares and develops young principled leaders in various fields to assist the State of Israel. Rebecca Searle, who recently participated in Hatzeva Mechina navigation, comments that, “It was amazing to see how each of us improved so vastly... each individual was able to grow in some way, and take a further step in the process of development and maturation.”
