Australasian Union of Jewish Students
The Australasian Union of Jewish Students (AUJS) (Hebrew: התאחדות הסטודנטים היהודים באוסטרליה וניו-זילנד) is the federal body for Jewish student societies at university campuses in Australia and New Zealand.
We provide a wide variety of political, social and educational activities based on our four pillars – Judaism, activism,pluralism and Zionism. Our famous Israel Programs send hundreds of students to Israel each year.
We operate on over 30 campuses in eight regions across Australia and New Zealand. We are affiliated with the World Union of Jewish Students (WUJS).
