The World Union of Jewish Students has always been the laboratory for training the brightest and the best in the Jewish world. Founded in 1924 to combat the anti-Jewish quotas in European Universities, WUJS has moved from high profile political campaigns to focus more on student welfare in the diaspora and combating the delegitimization of Israel on college campuses. Last night in Jerusalem a small, but still active group of its alumni met to discuss their past campaigns, their current endeavors and how they can help move WUJS into the future.
