Progressive Jewish Women for Israel asks for your support

For the first time, Progressive Jewish women across Australia are joining together to donate to a unique project in support of our sisters and daughters in Israel. We believe girls should have the same rights and opportunities as their brothers:  to feel important; to feel they matter.
A cornerstone of the Israel Movement for Progressive Judaism’s Bat Mitzvah program is participation in a mother and daughter course. Together with a Rabbi, the program teaches Jewish education and thought, prepares girls to read Torah, and explores the importance of the Jewish coming of age.
It empowers young girls to develop their own Jewish identify, be inspired by Progressive values and key female figures in Judaism, and fosters youth leadership. Girls are encouraged to use their newly-acquired skills through participation in local Tikkun Olam community projects.
The annual cost of this program in Israel is $100,000. A donation to the UIA Progressive Appeal of just $300 will support one girl to complete her Bat Mitzvah.
Note: Your tax-deductible donation to the UIA Progressive Appeal, which includes the Progressive Jewish Women for Israel's Appeal, will only be processed by the UIA in cases where credit card details have been provided; otherwise you will receive a confirmation invoice from the UIA with instructions for payment.

Note: Pledge payments will only be processed in cases where credit card details have been provided.
