These are your candidates for UJS President 2019-2020! Have a look at their manifestos and campaign videos below!


Etan Feingold, University of Nottingham

'I’m Etan Feingold and I study at the University of Nottingham. Whilst being on the largest JSOC in the country I’ve had time to see what works and what doesn’t. So, I’ve got a three-point plan to make real change for every Jewish student in this country. From day one as president, I will increase funding for all JSocs. I will fight antisemitism at the very core and I will campaign for a UJS member discount for all EL AL flights. This three-point plan will absolutely help to make campus a more safe, prosperous and engaging place for every Jewish student.'

James Harris, University of Birmingham

'I’m James, the former Birmingham JSOC President, a UJS delegate to the Board of Deputies and  Birmingham rep at the NUS Conference. Currently, too many Jewish students in the UK and Ireland don’t engage with UJS. That’s what I am trying to change. If elected, I’ll work to engage as many of those students as possible with our national organisation, building a movement that fights on the issues that matter to them. Every UJS President needs a plan where to take UJS. That’s why I’ve created my 2020 vision that is sure to be a ‘spectacle’!
