Supporting Jewish Societies in 31 non-Jewish schools.
UJIA JAMS works with Jewish Societies (J-Socs) in 24 non-Jewish schools in London, as well as a further 9 schools in Manchester and Glasgow, providing over 700 sessions a year.
We have developed a huge resource of activities to enrich pupils’ assemblies or lunchtimes, all delivered by a network of over 150 different organisations and individuals.
The aim of UJIA JAMS is to empower young people in non-Jewish schools to organise activities to develop their own Jewish identities and connection to Israel. All UJIA JAMS speakers are committed to supporting all Jewish pupils at these schools, regardless of Jewish denomination or background.
Sessions range from celebrating Jewish festivals and events to those covering Jewish history, religious values, social action, health and wellbeing.
UJIA JAMS also runs the innovative UR UNI LIFE campus preparation programme, which offers a range of sessions designed specifically for pupils in 6th Form. Delivered in partnership with the Union of Jewish Students (UJS), UR UNI LIFE gets pupils thinking about their choices after school, including what life on campus might be like and what it means to be Jewish at university.
For more about campus life, visit the UJS Campus Guide at www.ujscampusguide.co.uk.
