Accelerate’ is a new AUJS program that provides students with the opportunity to explore their connection to Israel and engage in complex conversations.

What is Accelerate?

Accelerate will take place from Tuesday 13th July - Thursday 15th July, where we will unpack the skills and knowledge needed to have conversations about Israel on campus and in our daily lives. Students will have the opportunity to engage with community leaders and experts in the field to gain a broader understanding of the conflict and its history. We will also explore the various impacts and forms of antisemitism and how to best approach issues that arise on campus. 

This program will give you the chance to engage in constructive and nuanced conversations about important issues in our community with students from across the regions. The program features sessions on the definition of Zionism, a discussion about our role as Diaspora Jewry, an exploration into the IHRA definition of antisemitism, and the nature of the current conflict. 

We aim to create the opportunity for you to meet and network with students from across Australia and New Zealand and immerse yourself in a unique educational experience. 

During May 2021 many of us have experienced a challenging time on campuses across Australia and New Zealand reminding us how important it is to engage in these complex conversations around Israel and antisemitism.
