Focusing on developing and strengthening Jewish Identity on tertiary campuses, through its engagement with the National Union of Australian Students. A voice for community advocacy, uniting the broader student body in condemning and combating antisemitism. Running important programs for Jewish continuity, collecting the testimonies of ‘third-generation’ children of Holocaust survivors.

AUJS is the representative body for Jewish university students and provides a sense of belonging for those students on campus. It facilitates programs to engage, enrich and develop their Jewish identity.

Time spent at university is incredibly formative. As young adults and future leaders of the community, AUJS offers social, political and leadership initiatives to develop their personal and professional networks and skills.

Your support for AUJS has a direct impact, helping the organisation hold events, to source inspirational guest speakers and to coordinate educational and cultural programming that makes Jewish identity a vibrant and meaningful part of student life. It also ensures that subsidies are available to participants who may otherwise not be able to attend.

Hundreds of Jewish university students and alumni across NSW and the ACT.

Shalom enables people to enrich their life, culture, education and professional endeavours through Jewish activity. They engage people of different ages and backgrounds through a variety of targeted programs and special events. Focussing on people living in Sydney, they build connection and community. Shalom is about possibilities and opportunities, challenging and inspiring individuals.
