A progressive, Jewish community which promotes Living Judaism – modern in its approach while traditional and historic in its appeal. Our values are rooted in T’filah (prayer), Limmud (education), Kiruv (community) and Tikkun Olam (repair of the world). At services, which are conducted in a mix of Hebrew and English to aid inclusivity, families sit and worship together. We provide a comprehensive Jewish education for all ages in addition to a wide range of social, cultural and Israel oriented activities. Our Youth groups are part of RSY-Netzer and Netzer Olami with many of our youngsters attending RSY-Netzer camps, Israel tours and the Shnat gap year programme in Israel.

We believe that the UHC should not just be a place you should come to, but a place you’ll love to come to, at the beating heart of this great Jewish community.

UJIA is securing our future by investing in young people in Israel and in our Jewish community. In the under-resourced Galil region we are creating new educational and employment opportunities through schools, colleges and community projects. In the UK we underpin the crucial ladder of Jewish and Israel engagement, by supporting youth movements and organisations, schools and educational programmes in Israel.
In Leeds we are focused on training our lay leadership and strengthening our connection to Israel through innovative youth provision. We support Brodetsky Primary School, The Zone Youth Centre, Scouts and Guides and the Makor Jewish Life Education Centre. UJIA also enriches Jewish life through support for the Youth Movements, School-to-School partnerships in Israel and Leeds, the Ethiopian Bar/Bat Mitzvah Programme, and a community Shaliach from Israel.

These projects typify the social welfare challenges that face Israeli society including integration of immigrant groups, empowerment programmes for vulnerable groups and Bar and Batmitzvah.
