Our Work

Our Israel Engagement Work

Israel Engagement is a core value of UJS. We work to bring Israel to Jewish student life in a way that educates, nurtures, and challenges existing viewpoints.

While politics informs much of our work, we look to expand Israel education beyond the Israel-Palestine conflict, and help students to build their own personal and cultural connections.

Take a look at the work we've been doing in this area, and visit the Israel Engagement Hub for all the details, and more information!
