At Queen Mary Students’ Union, every month is a reason to celebrate our students because we take pride in the diversity of our student body. In the last two weeks of January, after winter exams, we run the Jewish Heritage Fortnight, where we celebrate and recognise the Jewish community at QMSU.
What is Jewish Heritage Fortnight?
Jewish Heritage is celebrated in other parts of the world at different times in the year. For example, in America, the month of May is celebrated as Jewish Heritage Month to recognise the contributions of the American Jewish community. At QMSU, our student representatives and staff put together events and promotions all around our different campuses, between 23rd of January to the 5th February. This ranges from Tour of Jewish East End, Holocaust Memorial events, Jewish Heritage of QM etc. Some of our events are also set to continue through February.
How can you be involved?
You can get involved in our Jewish Heritage Fortnight campaign by following our website. All of our events, along with how to attend will be listed here. Many of our events will be free to attend and you can simply book yourself onto it. It will be a great way to meet tons of new people and understand different perspectives!
