Thank you for your interest in supporting UJS and the 8,500 Jewish students we represent.
UJS plays a vital role in our community and for our young adults, empowering them to create inclusive communities for them and their peers to shape and enjoy Jewish life whilst studying at university.
Jewish students each year deliver a vast amount of inspiring, impressive and important work. Read more in our latest annual review above (or view it in full screen here), but here are some highlights:
- Campaigning to defend Jewish students interests: stopping hate speech, fighting anti-Semitism and Racism, combatting the Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions [BDS] movement and other attempts to delegitimise the State of Israel, as well as securing kosher food on campus and working with other faith groups and societies to build fair, inclusive and safe campus communities
- Leading over 500 events and projects from Jewniversity Challenge to Juefa Cup, Friday Night Dinners to Lunch and Learns, Mitzvah Day on Campus to Holocaust Memorial Day commemoration and education
- Learning about the, Judaism, other faiths, the Holocaust and much more through programmes and trips including our Political Israel Trip for Activists [P.I.T.A], joining hundreds of Jewish students from across the world at the World Union of Jewish Students [Congress], and our dedicated student group joining the March of the Living
- Engaging with Israel in the broadest possible terms: experiencing Israeli culture, encountering Israelis from diverse backgrounds, and exploring their personal connection with Israel whilst shaping a critical and sophisticated Jewish identity
As well as training, supporting and resourcing our incredibly talented and dedicated student leaders and J-Soc committees, UJS offers access to kosher, safe and dynamic Jewish spaces, works with universities to improve provision of kosher accommodation, and collaborates with companies and TrainE-TraidE to offer career networking opportunities and summer work placements.
By Jewish students, for Jewish students, UJS is the only representative, cross-communal and peer-led Jewish student organisation, working for over 8,500 Jewish students in the UK and Ireland and working with 64 Jewish Societies.
Your support is vital for our students now and for our community’s future.
