The Leeds JSoc committee put on free snacks of bagels, humous and falafels at a party for Yom Ha'atzmaut.

There were exciting goings on for students in Manchester over Purim, including 'The Big Purim Meal', a kids party seuda with a bouncy castle, magician and over 100 people, and a Purim Fancy Dress Party club night.
Members of Leeds JSoc came in their best fancy dress costume, and performed in a talent show.
The winning talent show was a dance group made up of three boys who called themselves "the lady boys" and performed Beyonce's Single Ladies.
The best costume went to Colin who was dressed as a tub of jelly beans made of glowing balloons.
The event was attended by over 100 people who partied the night away after a weekend of Chinese Buffet, Esther the panto and and an Indian Banquet along with lots of singing, dancing and face painting.
