Amongst the speakers were now Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, Senator Richard Di Natale, Christopher Pyne, Anthony Albanese, Mark Dreyfus, Sky News Political Editor David Speers and Australian Human Rights Commission President Gillian Triggs.

“The conference allows Jewish students, to engage with the political process and learn about a wide range of Issues from those who make the decisions, which is an unrivalled opportunity”, AUJS National Political Director and Conference Organiser, Julian Kowal said.

“It is a testament to the immense respect our nation’s senior leaders have towards AUJS and the Jewish Community, given that no other comparable conference exists for any other student group in Australia”

“PTS also offers an opportunity for our voice as Jewish students to be heard by senior politicians from across the political spectrum, which is of immense importance to the ongoing welfare of our members, given the worsening situation on campus”

“Many of the speakers spoke of the importance of our community being actively engaged in politics, which will hopefully inspire the participants to join a political party and make a difference to how our community’s interests are represented”
