J Street U Brandeis is an American Pro-Israel, Pro-Peace organization, advocating a two-state resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
J Street U Brandeis is driven by a concern for the well being of the State of Israel and its robust democratic and Jewish character. Likewise, J Street U Brandeis is motivated by a respect of the right to self-determination of both the Israeli and Palestinian peoples and a concern for the well-being of the Palestinians.
Our mission is twofold: (1) Primarily, we are working to achieve a two-state solution through creating an informed and invested student body that will influence Congress to push for American diplomatic leadership to help solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. (2) Simultaneously, we are working to engage the American Jewish community in an honest and open conversation about Israel. We see Brandeis University as an influential microcosm that can have a significant impact on the larger Jewish world.
To achieve this we will empower constructive voices to take positive action on campus. We will strive to minimize polarization and give voice to those who feel muted. Likewise, we will dispel apathy on campus surrounding the conflict through nuanced education and civil dialogue. In these ways, we will unite and build an invested group of students creating positive change.
