Welcome to the virtual home of NUJLS, the National Union of Jewish Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, and Intersex Students.
The mission of NUJLS is to empower Jewish lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, and intersex students to feel proud of and affirmed in all their identities.
Since 1997, NUJLS has convened an annual gathering of queer Jewish students for a Shabbat weekend conference. Over the past fifteen years, NUJLS has connected nearly 1000 queer Jewish students around the United States and Canada with one another for a weekend full of spirited story-telling, services and meals, workshops, text study, activism, and spirituality. While NUJLS has experimented with mentoring and regional structures as well, an annual conference has been our flagship program, and has provided an opportunity for students to build community and leadership, network, and practice Judaism in a queer context.
