Our union is a peer led organisation led by Jewish students for Jewish students. Our leadership is split into three different organs which each carry out a specific role.
Led by the WUJS Chairperson; the Secretariat, made up of staff and volunteer activists, are the main people coordinating the day to day activities of the union. We have activists based all over the world, focused on building a more connected, global Jewish student movement. If you want to get involved just email firstname.lastname@example.org
The 8 members of the WUJS Board are elected by the WUJS General Assembly to support the WUJS Chairperson in running WUJS. They assist with fundraising, advise the Chair on matters of policy and often take on specific roles such as involvement with the WUJS Congress team.
The Executive is the highest authority of WUJS except for the annual Congress. It serves as a substitute, miniature General Assembly during the course of the year, in order to compensate for the impracticability of having an active General Assembly on an ongoing basis due to the international nature of WUJS. The Executive consists of the Chairperson, the Treasurer (if one serves), the Board members and representatives of 8 WUJS member unions.
