Jewish students celebrate diversity: I am an Israeli This week the Australasian Union of Jewish Students are launching a campaign to celebrate diversity in Israeli society.
The campaign, titled I am an Israeli, highlights the stories of nine Israelis—ranging from a Muslim former army officer to an observant Jewish artist and storyteller. Each individual describes themselves through key identifying attributes, and then finishes by stating that they are an Israeli.

“To the Future: Holocaust Commemoration for Our Generation”
What is commemoration? What purpose(s) does it serve? How does it impact me and my peers? What does it mean for the Jewish community and our future? Can commemoration shape actions?
