Background Information

The United Jewish Israel Appeal (UJIA) is a major Jewish charity, working to support both development projects within Israel, and to support the development of the Jewish community in Britain. Although the current organisation was only established in the 1990s, its roots go back to the 1940s, and it is the successor body to such groups as the United Palestine Appeal (est. 1944), the Joint Palestine Appeal (est. 1947), and the Joint Israel Appeal (est. 1973). The organisation now incorporates its former charitable arm, the Joint Jewish Charitable Trust. Company no. 3295115, charity no. 1060078. Sources: www.ujia.org; www.jpr.org.uk
