Hundreds of Jewish young adults attended the NSW Australasian Union of Jewish Students (AUJS) Purim party celebration at El Topo Basement, in the heart of Bondi Junction in Sydney.

The purim party is traditionally the biggest AUJS regional event of semester one, and the celebration was a great way to begin the new year for university students before the heavy workload begins.

Moving away from traditional purim costumes, the party’s theme was tropical, inspiring many creative floral costumes and props.

NSW AUJS Vice President, Sabrina Ulis, told J-wire: “Purim was such a great success, we saw such a diverse crowd of students attend this event and the atmosphere was incredible. Looking forward to what the rest of the year has to offer for AUJS and its members…”

Beginning as early as 1948 initially at the University of Sydney before expanding both regionally to other campuses as well as nationally to New Zealand, AUJS has been the primary representative body and voice for Jewish students on university campuses.

AUJS works on the four pillars of Judaism, Zionism, Pluralism and Activism and hosts a range of social, political, cultural and educational events throughout the year based on those pillars in order to engage Jewish tertiary aged students and strengthen Jewish identity.
