Campaigns were launched this week for the top role in Jewish student politics, UJS president, with two third-year students in the running.
Ella Rose is studying history and politics at the University of Nottingham. She hopes to use her experience as JSoc’s Israel campaigns officer to drive UJS forward as a “grassroots, peer-led organisation”.
Religious organisations that hold free events on campus are preventing students from developing a genuine commitment to Judaism and Israel, the executive director of the Union of Jewish Students has warned.
David Brown, who joined UJS in June, said groups offering these events were detracting from the work of campus Jewish societies.
