The Jewish Student Society of Bavaria (Verband Jüdischer Studenten in Bayern, VJSB)

The Jewish Student Society of Bavaria (Verband Jüdischer Studenten in Bayern, VJSB) is based in Munich and concentrates on all areas of jewish student life: culture, intercultural dialogue, holidays, partys, sport events and political engagement are part of their agenda.

The VJSB was founded during the postwar period, initially with the predominant task of representing the interests of jewish students. It helped out with food ration cards and offered a student advisory service. Over the following decades the society became more and more a socio-political initiative of students, trainees and young professionals, aged between 18 and 35, from the jewish communities in Bavaria.

After a break the VJSB was reactivated in 2004. Its goal is to offer young jews that grew up in Bavaria a home where they can develope and strengthen their Jewish identity.

The motto 'With us, aquaintances can quickly turn into good friends' is the focus of the agenda.
