The annual WUJS Awards are a wonderful opportunity to celebrate all the people who have contributed and dedicated themselves to Jewish life on campus. It is a night where students from unions all over the world can join together to celebrate all that they have achieved the past year.
We want to make students feel proud of their activities on campus, to remind them that what they’re doing makes a difference and has a positive, tangible impact on student life. We award prizes for a whole host of campus activity. Celebrating young leaders who have promoted Jewish and Israel education, organised events of significance and import, actively engaged with interfaith or led a social action campaign are just a few of the awards offered.
This year we have doubled the number of awards offered and we received more nominations than ever before.
Well done to everyone who contributes to Jewish life on campus and specifically those who have been shortlisted. Here is a list of the nominees:
On September 29th WUJS officially launched the Israeli Friends of WUJS at an alumni social held at the exclusive Rubi bar in Tel Aviv. We were so pleased to see such a great group of alumni and current activists showing up and we are looking forward our next event.
Israeli Friends of WUJS will hold regular events throughout the year to bring together the various WUJS alumni and member union alumni living in Israel.
