This Purim, we would like to show our appreciation and gratitude towards all those who have, and continue to, protect the expression of Jewish life: shabbat and holidays, weddings and bar/bat mitzvas, study circles and youth group meetings.
This past Tuesday was International Women's Day, the day when we celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women and when we remind ourselves that there is still much work to be done to truly achieve gender parity. To celebrate we asked some wonderful women Jewish students from around the world to develop an online campaign for us and so, over the last 5 days we highlighted an A-Z of incredible Jewish women from throughout history right up till today. Off the back of the success of this campaign we have decided to create a WUJS Women's Committee that will develop new projects and initiatives concerning women's issues within our union.
