Leon Levitt
​Recipient of Keren Hayesod’s Yakir Award, Dr. Leon Levitt has served in leadership positions with the United Israel Appeal in Western Australia for over 20 years, since 1990. For a significant number of these years he held the position of Chairman of the WA campaign.
Leon has shown endless commitment to our cause and has led by showing personal example, both as a most dedicated canvasser and a major donor himself. Leon was pivotal in lifting the giving level in Perth to respected worldwide standards.
He has been involved in UIA missions to Israel, in starting a Young UIA Division in Perth, in organizing top quality events and making the United Israel Appeal Perth’s leading Jewish organization.
In appreciation of his dedicated service to Israel and the Jewish people, Leon’s name was added in late 2010 to UIA WA’s Honour Board and he was awarded with the special Keren Hayesod Key. In 2011, Leon has become a member of the UIA Board of Governors, the leading group of UIA supporters in Perth and he also serves as the organization’s Immediate Past Chairman.
