UJS (Union of Jewish Students) is the representative body for over 8,500 Jewish students who are members of 64 university Jewish societies (J-Socs) studying in the UK and Ireland. UJS is the only peer-led cross-communal Jewish student organisation.
With the assistance of the Jewish Youth Fund, students from over 20 J-Socs (Jewish societies) across the UK met in Lancaster at the end of November 2015, for UJS Summit – the annual training weekend. Over 100 student leaders were trained in order to run their J-Soc committees, in the most effective way. Students attended from all over the UK, including: Birmingham, Edinburgh, London and York. Topics covered included budgeting, campaigning and Friday Night Dinner cooking. The hustings for the UJS Presidential election also proved a highlight.
UJS President, Hannah Brady said: “Over 100 students gathered at UJS Summit to make meaningful Jewish connections with UJS and with their J-Soc committees. It was fantastic to facilitate productive debate within a strong cross-communal environment and to see students be challenged and inspired by one another."
