Annual Student Conference

Over 100 participants, predominantly students from across the country, joined StandWithUs UK for their 6th Annual Israel in Focus conference – celebrating six years of the organisation’s pro-Israel campus activism in the UK.

The conference saw a gathering of students from all different backgrounds, faiths and political persuasions. Student leaders attending ranged from activists in Unite the Union to members of Conservative Future. In addition to committed and active Jewish students, at least a third of all participants were not Jewish.  ‘It was a powerful reminder of the broad array of support which the cause of Israel commands on campus,’ said Joseph Stoll, UK Campus Director. This year we were proud to host our very special guest speaker from the IDF Medical Corps, Dr. Hagit Padova, who discussed her experience in the recent humanitarian mission to Nepal. Students were treated to discussion panels, workshops and seminars to prepare them for the forthcoming academic year. We would like to thank all participants for coming, and congratulate the recipients of our awards. Keep standing with Israel.
