After the Second World War, about fifty young Belgian Jews founded the Belgian Union of Jewish Students (UEJB). In the years that followed, many young people joined the ranks of UEJB. Seventy years later, UEJB is still a free and dynamic organization representing its members and the Jewish youth. It provides assistance to young Jews studying in Belgium, organizes numerous cultural activities (university conferences, publication of a magazine, debates, sharing of Jewish culture), recreational activities (drinks, annual ball, etc.) and militant activities by fighting against anti-Semitism and the propagation of negationist ideas as well as against all forms of racism, xenophobia, homophobia, transphobia, validism, sexism, classism and more generally exclusion. UEJB also aims to contribute to the education of young people in the broadest sense of the term, whether they are Jewish or non-Jewish. Our Youth Organization has local sections in Brussels (which is its headquarters), Antwerp, Liège and Louvain-la-Neuve. UEJB is a Youth Organization that is recognized by the French Community and pursues objectives of permanent education. These objectives aim at developing the personal responsibilities and skills of its members, Jews and non-Jews, in order to help them become responsible, active, critical and supportive citizens. It also offers training and support to all those who wish to do so. UEJB pursues these objectives according to its axes: the duty of memory, the fight against racism and anti-Semitism, the Jewish identity, the support to students and the creation of meeting places, as well as the relations with its international partners.
