Josh Seitler: Students Taking The Lead On The Students’ Issues

The first term of the 2016/17 academic year saw an unprecedented amount of initiatives run by Jewish students.

In just 10 weeks, an impressive 17 J-Socs hosted or co-hosted interfaith events, during Interfaith Week and throughout the term. Across London, the Midlands and the North, highlights included Shabbat or Shabbat-style meals organised by J-Socs with other faith societies, a panel on ‘Faith in the 21st Century’, and a discussion about the story of Cain and Abel arranged by one J-Soc together with the Council of Christians and Jews. There was also a huge increase in Jewish students engaging with Israel from cultural, social and political angles and facilitating engagement for their non-Jewish peers too. Most recently, Jewish students added their voices to calls for the urgent action that is so desperately needed to stop the suffering of innocent victims in Aleppo, hosting an emergency rally in Parliament Square that was attended by well over 100 people. Attendees included Jews and non-Jews, students and non-students, which particularly demonstrates that Jewish students can and do take the lead on issues that matter both to them and in wider society.

Bernard Hughes: Theresa May’s Government

Until recently it had been a very quiet summer from the Conservatives who mostly enjoyed their holidays while watching Labour go through its second leadership contest in a year. It could of course have been very different – had Andrea Leadsom not stepped aside back in May we would currently be discussing the result of a bitterly fought Conservative leadership election. But history turned out differently and Theresa May was in Downing Street on the same day that Owen Smith announced his candidacy.
