WIZO Commitment Awards - what they are, and how you can nominate the winners

WIZO in the UK is looking for nominations of candidates who have demonstrated outstanding commitment to changing lives and building futures, close to home or within the wider world

    Music and the arts, promoting healthy eating and facilitating multicultural programmes on campus are among new categories for the latest WIZO Commitment Awards, launched at the official residence of Israeli ambassador Mark Regev this week.

    WIZO was praised by Ambassador Regev for “shaping the vision of the Jewish national home”.

    The awards, open to people of all faiths, recognise social activism and winners are offered a tour of Israel.

    Categories include Commitment to Inspiring the Next Generation of Scientists and High-Tech Professionals, Commitment to Inspiring Women, Commitment to Multiculturalism on Campus, and many more. 

    A full list of the categories and criteria can be obtained here.

    Philanthropist David Dangoor said the charity exhibited a “deep love for the Jewish people and humanity” through its welfare projects in Israel.

    Here's how you can take part:

    The winner in each category will receive a complimentary visit to Israel.

    The schedule will include;

    • Visits to WIZO projects

    • Opportunities to meet Israeli counterparts

    • Cultural or business experiences and activities reflecting the range of Commitment Award categories

    The winner of the draw will be announced at The Commitment Awards Presentation Event Monday 2 July 2018, in central London.

    • Please note that successful semi-finalists, accompanied by a guest and their nominator, will be hosted at a private reception in London on Thursday 22 February 2018.

    “Seeing the projects and the work that WIZO does first hand is an experience that is hard to imagine from a distance. The passion felt by WIZO staff, lay leaders and volunteers is humbling to witness.”
