WHAT IS JSU – JSU (The Jewish Student Union) was created for one simple purpose, “to get more Jewish teens attending high schools to do something Jewish!” That’s it! It’s that simple!!!

NorCal JSU is made up of 16 JSU clubs and services more than 500 teens! JSU creates a fun, social atmosphere, and brings cool, Jewish advisers to public school campuses. JSU reaches all types of Jewish teenagers and provides them with programs that strengthen their Jewish identity and connection to Israel.

JSU facilitates weekly or bi-weekly club meetings that meet during the lunch hour, before or after school, providing food for the body and soul. Programs include speakers from a variety of Jewish organizations, discussions on timely topics of interest to the participants and interactive activities. Kosher pizza, Krispy Kreme doughnuts, Starbucks, holiday foods or other snacks are always served.
