The South African Jewish Community has a long, proud and meaningful history of support for Israel and for the well-being of the local Jewish community. Despite our small numbers, the community continues to show its support of Zionism and for the security of our vibrant community.
Our community has faced many challenges in recent years and despite this the IUA-UCF Gauteng has successfully met its obligations to its local beneficiaries as well as sending funds to support special projects in Israel.
Through our many exciting activities, including Missions to Israel, Gala Dinners, Golf Days, Comedy Evenings, Art Exhibitions and Auctions we have been able to continue our support of our beneficiaries and engage the community and strengthen bonds between our community and Israel.
UCF contributions are used to fund the protection of Jewish interests and rights in South Africa. Security is of vital importance to our campaign and through our beneficiaries; the CSO, SAJBD and SAUJS we are able to fight anti-Semitism, the BDS movement and ensure our civil rights and physical safety.
IUA donations are used with similar donations from around the world to help save Jewish lives and life, strengthen Jewish identity and fortify the fabric of Israeli society. IUA funds are also used locally to support the Zionist activities of SAZF and the Israel Centre.
