WUJS is delighted to announce that today saw the launch of Global Jewish Voice, a major collaboration between WUJS, AJC-ACCESS and New Voices. Global Jewish Voice is a daily blog for young Jewish writers around the World. We have recruited fantastic writers from around the World and are incredibly excited for the future of this important initiative. Check it out here!
The World Union of Jewish Students is delighted to announce that we hosted 17 young political leaders in Israel from 22-27th September of this month. The students came from Italy, South Africa, Belgium, Ukraine, Germany, Finland, Norway, Malta and Greece and represented a broad spectrum of political viewpoints. Typically most of the participants were either representatives of the youth wing of a political party, their National Union of Students, or NGO’s.
WUJS committed to hosting a non-partizan, educational experience in order to broaden the understanding of the region of young political leaders. Included in the trip were meetings with prominent Knesset members and NGO’s (including the Bereaved Families Forum), as well as visits to Better Place, Yad Vashem, and Sderot, as well as a trip to Ramallah in the West Bank to meet with representatives of One Voice Palestine.
