The World Union of Jewish Students is in partnership with various organizations that share our values. These organizations include those in which we have partnership agreements with, those whom offer us assistance through funding or other means, and organizations to which we represent Jewish students.
The World Jewish Congress is the international organization that represents Jewish communities and organizations in 100 countries around the world. It advocates on their behalf towards governments, parliaments, international organizations and other faiths. The WJC represents the plurality of the Jewish people, and is politically non-partisan. Since WUJS’ second Chairperson, Maurice Perlzweig, helped found the World Jewish Congress, in 1936, we have been a central partner of the WJC. We hold a Vice Presidency on the Executive Board.
WUJS Israel is a 5 month post college program that offers the ultimate Israel experience for Jewish students from around the world. The program is based in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv and allows you the opportunity to intern with one of Israel’s leading companies or NGOs, or develop your artistic talent, while studying Hebrew and more. The program is run by Young Judaea.
The American Jewish Committee has worked since 1906 to safeguard and strengthen Jews and Jewish life worldwide by promoting democratic and pluralistic societies that respect the dignity of all peoples. WUJS signed a partnership agreement with AJC in 2009.
The World Zionist Organization is committed to promoting the Zionist idea and enterprise as vital and positive elements of contemporary Jewish life, in accordance with the principles articulated in the Jerusalem Program. WUJS holds various capacities within the WZO, sitting on their Board of Directors as well as various internal committees.
KKL-JNF is Israel’s leading humanitarian and environmental charity. They raise funds for the building blocks of everyday life in Israel such as reservoirs, irrigation systems, desalination plants, forest planting, recycling schemes, roads, housing and healthcare centres. WUJS has a seat on the Board of Directors of KKL-JNF held by former WUJS Treasurer, Daniel Cohen.
For over 80 years, the Jewish Agency has served as the link between the Jewish people and Israel, working to ensure the future of a connected, committed, global Jewish People with a strong Israel at its center.
The World Union of Jewish Students holds consultative NGO status at the United Nations Environmental, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). As such from time to time WUJS may represent Jewish students to UNESCO at their headquarters in Paris.
