What is SAUJS?

SAUJS stands for the South African Union of Jewish Students. We are a voluntary association (what even is that?) run by university students across South Africa. We create a thriving Jewish student community, where our students feel supported, connected and engaged. We strive to develop and strengthen Jewish identity on campus and provide a supportive, social network amongst our Jewish students. Our love of Judaism, love of Israel and love of South Africa, make up our 3 founding pillars and inform our incredible initiatives and events. So, whether you’re a student or collaborator, we have a place for you at SAUJS.
