Throughout the year WUJS stands up against organizations, causes and individuals who promote Antisemitism, hatred and xenophobia. WUJS, as an organization, counts among its friends a host of inter-faith, lgbt and minority-group associations and will, at any point it feels necessary, speak out for their right to live free from fear or intolerance. WUJS is particularly active at certain points in the year that mark unfortunate historical markers in the struggle for freedom and acceptance, especially in late January during the International Day for Countering Antisemitism and Commemorating the Holocaust. WUJS is a Presidium member of the World Zionist Organization and takes part in its global activities on a regular basis.
Hope 4 Hanukkah 2014
Students attending the annual WUJS and EUJS Yad Vashem Seminar visited a home for the elderly in Jerusalem on the 8th night Hanukkah to light candles with them. This small act of kindness that we were able to do is exactly what Hope 4 Hanukkah is about, bringing a little bit a joy to people who could really do with it.
EUJS and WUJS are proud to invite you to a selective, in-depth Shoah seminar at the International School for Holocaust Studies at Yad Vashem. Join Jewish student leaders, activists and informal educators for a seminar with leading experts and educators and discover new perspectives on the Shoah and discuss their impact on our communities today.

Hope 4 Hanukkah 2012
The World Union of Jewish Students (WUJS) alongside the European Union of Jewish Students (EUJS) are distributing toys and gifts to disadvantaged and new immigrant children across the south of Israel. The project, called ‘Hope for Hanukkah’ was the result of cooperation between the two organisations’ chairpeople Oliver Worth and Andi Grgely who wanted to connect diaspora students to the plight of children during and after Operation Pillars of Defense.
