WUJS offers the possibility to gain real experience in a vibrant student organisation,
WUJS was founded in 1924 in Central Europe to combat the Anti-Jewish quotas in European Universities. Many things have changed since the establishment of the Union, but the most important elements have remained: young Jewish activists have been on the forefront of fighting for human rights, equal treatment of minorities – Jews and non-Jews alike- and building bridges between cultures and traditions. Jewish students have been inspiring generations to not remain silent when injustice and inequality is globally apparent. They stood in solidarity with the victims of the Yugoslav war, with the victims of the Rwandan genocide, with the Roma people who were and continue to be persecuted, and with the LGBT community.
WUJS offers the possibility to be part of a 90 years tradition and write the new chapter of its history. You will meet and work with incredible people from all over the world – from South Africa to New Zealand, and from Chile to India – and will be part of inspiring projects for the Jewish people.
