James Harris hoping to make the most of his tenure.

The organisation, which works with 67 Jewish societies (J-Socs) in campuses across the UK, celebrated its centenary last year, and welcomed new graduates to the London-based team, which now comprises two Israeli-born staff members.

Coventry alumnus Bradley Langer, who was previously campaigns sabbatical officer, returns as campaigns organiser, while Haifa-born Lancaster student Shiri Wolff comes back in a communications role.

New faces include self-proclaimed Northwest London girl Amanda Sefton, who studied in Birmingham, and another Israeli Gil Rubin, a Cambridge graduate who grew up in Dorset.

In the post-coronavirus world many campuses are making the decision to go digital, with Harris saying: “I’m confident that by doing more online, we can engage more Jewish students in more innovative ways than ever before.”

Harris has already begun work, meeting the Board of Deputies’ government, religious and regional affairs officer Daniel Elton last week to discuss promoting organ donation, now that the law has changed to an opt-out system.
