United Jewish Israel Appeal Israel Experience is a partnership of UJIA and the Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI) and is one of the leading Jewish communal programmes in the world. Based in offices in London and Jerusalem, UJIA Israel Experience works with youth movements, schools, student groups and synagogue bodies to produce high quality programmes that impact the lives of the participants.
UJIA Israel Experience is responsible for the strategic planning for the UK Jewish community in the field of Jewish educational travel in Israel and Europe.
UJIA Israel Experience is the Birthright Israel Partner Organisation providing trips from Ireland, along with the rest of the UK. We’re responsible for marketing the Birthright Israel trips, supervising the trip itineraries as well as training UK staff to go on all the trips.
A major aspect of our responsibility is in the trip follow-up, where we provide a range of services and activities for returning Alumni. This includes advise on more trips to Israel, events in the Jewish community and other Israel and Jewish related events.
What will I experience on a UJIA Birthright trip?
You'll learn about the country's history, culture and politics and make new friends along the way. As well as meeting new people from the UK, you will have the chance to get to know young Israelis from a cross-section of society including Druze, Bedouins, Arabs and Jews.
