YOUR UNION OF JEWISH STUDENTS
We are the voice of over 8,500 Jewish students, spanning 67 Jewish Societies (J-Socs) on campuses across the UK and Ireland. We are traditional, progressive, cultural and spiritual; we come from the left, centre and right and can be found across religious and political spectrums.
UJS is a democratic, peer-led students' union. At the helm is the President, who is elected each December and takes up their post at the start of the following academic year. The President leads a team of sabbatical officers and full-time staff. Together, the President and sabbatical team are responsible for running the union, making sure that the policy passed at UJS' annual Conference becomes reality and supporting J-Socs and Jewish students on campus. All our work is guided by our core values.
We have initiatives and projects in the areas of Campaigns, Social Action, Interfaith, Holocaust Education, Israel Engagement, Mental Health, Liberation and Leadership Development. The breadth and depth of these projects are spearheaded by the UJS President and the team, as well as the passionate students who work with us to make them happen.
