Balfour 100

Inspired by our constitution, core values, and many years of working towards achieving and strengthening our Jewish people’s right to national self-determination, UJS is excited to be participating in a community wide project to celebrate the Balfour declaration’s hundred-year anniversary and reflect on the achievements and as yet unrealised aspirations for the worldwide Zionist movement.

Reflecting on 2017 also being the 120th anniversary of the first Zionist Congress, we are excited to reconnect with the diverse and dynamic ideas that were brought by various delegations to that momentous event, as we explore and expand what Zionism means today and to our different students.  

There will be opportunities for students to engage in Balfour 100 activity on a local and national level. For more information for how to get involved, please contact the Campaigns Team and visit to find out more!
