By creating a schedule of events at the start of each term/semester, the Jewish student organisation can give members the chance to plan their attendance, think about bringing friends along, and make informed decisions about what to go to and what to skip.
Let’s face it, we’re in college & time is limited. Here are some great ideas that will get you involved, make a difference, and don’t require much of your time. Jewish Student Organisations can be concerned with issues that affect the wider community, and such issues can attract otherwise unengaged Jewish students.
Whilst these events aren’t incredibly valuable educationally, they are certainly significant in terms of membership’s enjoyment, image etc. Although organizing a ball seems like a lot of work, there is a sense in which there is surprisingly little to do. Decide a few things, make sure people are selling tickets, set up a party, and enjoy!
Organised campaigns allow you to exert a huge influence on public opinion and the political process. In the past, Jewish students campaigned for the release of Soviet Refuseniks; we've campaigned for an end to the genocide in Darfur and spoken up for Israel at the anti-Semitic UN Durban conferences! Similarly great goals can be achieved by other Jewish student campaigns that are well run and this guide is your start to finish resource to help make them happen.
Be attentive to planning. Whether putting together a single program or a years’ worth of events, careful planning is your investment in positive, well received programming. Interesting programming dynamics will arise and by being mindful of these dynamics you will be successful in your endeavours.
