I am an Israeli
I am an Israeli is designed to give the Australian public an opportunity to hear from everyday Israelis – to learn about their lifestyles and the diverse, rich cultural nation in which they live. The campaign does not focus on extraordinary individuals who are unique to Israel – these are real Israelis, a cross section of the wider public who, through their typically Israeli stories, showcase the diverse landscape of Israeli society.
The Australasian Union of Jewish Students (AUJS) has represented Jewish students on campus across Australia and New Zealand since 1948. We have student clubs registered at over 25 university campuses. Each year we organise engaging social and political events both on and off campus, run a number of international programs to Israel and around the world, and provide Jewish students with useful educational resources.
AUJS operates at national, regional and campus levels. Our many student leaders, together with our administrative and support staff, are responsible for bringing Jewish life to you in your time at university.
National: AUJS National makes policy decisions on behalf of the organisation, represents AUJS within the community, organises Israel programs and AUJS’s nationally-run conferences, facilitates communication between the AUJS Regions and produces and distributes resources and publications for use on campus.
