UPJ Israel Solidarity Trip 3-10 May 2024 Announcement

Dear Friends,

We are very excited to launch our first ever UPJ Solidarity Mission to Israel (See flyer).

October 7 changed the lives of every Israeli, and it also changed us in the Diaspora. One outcome from this experience has been the re-connection of Israeli’s and Diaspora Jewry. Our shared destiny and the importance of supporting each other in these challenging times has not been more apparent than it is now.

The Future Rests On Our Shoulders

Dear community members

I believe that today the need for unity of the Jewish people and the Israeli society is greater than ever before. The article below reflects the requirement for all of us to rise above petty politics and build bridges of dialogue and collaboration among the sections of the Jewish people.

May 2024 bring us together in peace and solidarity.

To my fellow Zionist youth… the future rests on our shoulders!

Jewish history has taught us that the future of our People rests on the shoulders of its youth. As kids, we were taught of our People’s story – the tragedy of our displacement and the triumph of our survival and cultural prosperity. We were inspired to care about the world and to question relentlessly. As we grew up, many of us became leaders in our youth movements and community, taking it upon ourselves to guide the next generation of young Jews to take pride in their Jewish and Zionist identity and ownership over making this world a better place.
