Yachad Student Conference 2017 @ North London
Sep 6 @ 9:30 am – 4:30 pm

Yachad are very excited to invite you to our seventh Student Conference!

Led and organised by Yachad Youth, the 2017 Yachad Student Conference is an amazing opportunity to hear from and debate with experts, connect and discuss with Jewish students from across the UK and shape the future of the pro-Israel, pro-peace movement in the UK.

The conference is completely free, and includes lunch and refreshments.

Join expert panellists discussing ‘Antisemitism and anti-Zionism on campus, online and elsewhere’ and ‘What happened to the peace process and where is it going?’ (speakers TBA). There will also be optional breakout sessions, campaigns training and campus networking.

Booking is essential. Please email info@yachad.org.uk or message Amos Yachad on Facebook if you have any questions or there is anything we can do to make it easier for you to attend

Note: this event is for current UK university students only
