Last night, over 150 people gathered for the annual UJS Student Awards which celebrates students’ contributions to Jewish life on campus. Representatives were at the awards from over 25 J-Socs throughout the UK and Ireland with 67 students nominated for 11 awards. Mazal Tov to those that won and all those that were nominated for awards this year!
Over 1400 Jewish and non-Jewish supporters of Israel from across the political spectrum gathered in Central London for the annual We Believe in Israel Conference. Attendees heard from speakers such as the Rt Hon Michael Gove MP; Michael Dugher MP, The Chief Rabbi and His Excellency Ambassador Daniel Taub.
Representatives from Students’ Unions across the country and the National Union of Students went on a two day intensive trip to Poland to explore Jewish life in pre-war Poland and to visit the Nazi concentration and death camp Auschwitz- Birkenau, with the aim of student leaders being able to educate their contemporaries about the Holocaust and its relevance today.
UJS Student Awards 2015 are fast approaching and we are excited to reveal all those who have been nominated this year!
Last week the SOAS Students’ Union held a referendum where students, academic staff and contract staff voted for their university to adopt an academic boycott of Israel. UJS unequivocally condemns the use of academic boycotts against Israel along with all other forms of BDS.
