A new Chair for SAUJS Western Cape

We welcome Deena Katzen, as the new SAUJS Western Cape Chairperson.

Deena is in her fifth year in serving the South African Union of Jewish Students. She previously served as a member of the WITS committee, University of Cape Town committee, National Zionist Officer and National Chairperson. She is currently completing her BCom Accounting degree at the University of Cape Town. Together with the rest of the committee we know that SAUJS WC will continue to grow and carry out its mandate of providing a safe space for Jewish students on campus and creating opportunities for growth and learning.

The South African Union of Jewish Students, Western Cape (SAUJS WC) has seen many changes. Throughout this transitional period the one element that has remained true to our core has been our dedication to Jewish students and fostering a deep and meaningful sense of community that will last a lifetime.

Grant Norrie rose and grew into his role of Chairperson of SAUJS WC. He led with the help of an excellent Executive, SAUJS WC through a year filled with pizza making, coffee tasting, lunch and learns, social media campaigns around Zionism and Identity, strategy sessions, hadrachas, hosting international delegations, self-defence workshops, UCT socials, mental health talks and environmental cleaning campaigns and connecting Jewish students to the core of their Judaism.

We look forward to another term of growth and fantastic events with our new chair.
