WUJS Elects New President and the Board:

At the 49th WUJS Congress national student unions democratically elected a new leadership. From February 2023 the new president of WUJS is Yana Naftalieva. Here is Yana’s opening letter to the WUJS community: 

“I can’t wait for the amazing journey that we will experience together. I’m pretty sure that the next two years are gonna be exciting for jewish students across the globe. And I will be honored to lead WUJS during these times. After being a Jewish student in the diaspora during my bachelor degree and in Israel during my masters it would be a dream to represent jewish students and address their needs. I am ready to advocate for Jewish students and ensure that the voices of the young generation of Jewish leaders are heard at the major institutions throughout the world. YallaWUJS!”
