European Union of Jewish Students

The European Union of Jewish Students (EUJS) is a pluralistic, inclusive and non-partisan umbrella organization that supports Jewish student unions throughout Europe and represents its members in international institutions and organizations. Founded in 1978, we currently have 35 member organizations, spanning Russia over Scandinavia to the United Kingdom.

EUJS is lead by a president and seven board members, elected by EUJS member organizations at the EUJS General Assembly. The executive director oversees staff and operations at the EUJS headquarters in Brussels, Belgium.
