Earlier this week we published this piece on intermarriage by senior AUJS activist, Ashleigh Werner. At WUJS we recognise that there are a plurality of views on Judaism and one of the roles of the student blogs section of our website is to provide a platform for diverse voices within our community to share their thoughts, musings and big ideas. The piece following is a response to Ashleigh's article by a committee member of Glasgow Jewish Society, Marcell Horvarth.
My life is plagued by questions... What are you doing? Who are you with? When will you be back? When are you going to finish your uni work? When are you going to be training? What are you eating? When am I seeing you? (From my mother as I just moved out of home)
On Monday 27th July 2015, the South African Union of Jewish Students (SAUJS) held their first ever gala dinner in Johannesburg, with the aim of engaging their many alumni. The evening was a great success with many current and past activists in attendance. Since our earliest incarnation as the “Jewish Student Association” 102 years ago, SAUJS has been working tirelessly to support all Jewish South African university students.
