President Benny interviewed by Arutz Sheva on the challenges facing Jewish students in Europe

During the recent EJC annual gala, the Israeli news company, Arutz Sheva, managed to sneak in a short interview with the EUJS President on the challenges facing Jewish students in Europe.

"The main challenges of students are passing their exams [...] however for jewish students on campus, there are specific challenges, one of them [...] being BDS.

"It often turns out into pure antisemitism that students face on campus" Benny notes.

When asked about the role of EUJS, Benny sited the organisation's non-formal education programmes: "we offer leadership seminars, leadership trainings for national student activists" and "we want to empower them to speak up".
