Jewish Student Union 5th-8th Grade

$0.00

The Jewish Student Union (JSU) program is an initiative of NCSY, a Jewish not-for-profit organization, that operates in communities throughout North America, South America, and Israel. Open to all students regardless of religious background, JSU clubs facilitate students’ pride in their own heritage and cultural understanding with friends and neighbours within the school community. Currently in over 300 schools in North America (including 9 in Ottawa), JSU facilitates Jewish “culture clubs” featuring interactive activities, holiday-related programs, engaging discussions on Jewish values, and leadership and social action opportunities. Kosher pizza, holiday foods, or other snacks are served at each club meeting, typically held at lunchtime, contributing to the comfortable setting and low-barrier format of the club. Students attending JSU programs typically report that club meetings become a highlight of their schedule, they develop a deeper appreciation for diversity and inclusivity, and frequently pursue leadership positions and social justice causes both in their schools and in the broader community.
