Although the UJS Student Awards are now over, there was still the highly anticipated top ten of the Jewish News’ 25 under 25. It is great that so many dedicated and inspiring leaders in the community being recognised for their achievements. Eight out of the top ten have been heavily involved with J-Soc and UJS during their time at or following University and this is truly amazing to see.
Last night, over 150 people gathered for the annual UJS Student Awards which celebrates students’ contributions to Jewish life on campus.

The JUEFA Cup was played on a bright Manchester Sunday, with around 140 students lined up from all over the UK.

Some great skills were on show and most importantly, the UJS men’s team won a game for the first time in JUEFA’s seven year history!
