J Street U

The student organizing arm of J Street

Follow J Street U on:




J Street U is the student organizing arm of J Street, the political home for pro-Israel, pro-peace, pro-democracy Americans.

J Street U educates students about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and America’s role in promoting peace. J Street U provides a home for students to hold nuanced views without compromising their pro-Israel values. We equip students to find their political voice and to take action on their college campuses, in their Jewish communities, and on Capitol Hill.

By educating, training, and mobilizing students, we are building the mainstream pro-Israel movement on college campuses nationwide. J Street U is the next generation of leaders who will advocate for American foreign policy that represents their core values.
