EBBM, UJIA’s flagship programme, aims to connect British B’nei Mitzvah to Israel and in particular, the Israeli-Ethiopian community living in Kiryat Bialik.
Through a range of activities including club sessions, pen pal correspondence and fundraising initiatives, the programme allows young people to explore their Jewish identity and helps them understand the impact they can have on the wider Jewish world.
Our programme has successfully supported over 90 families and children educationally, socially and psychologically. It has supported them in learning about their Jewish heritage and Israeli history and society, culminating in their Bar/Bat Mitzvah.
