Союз Еврейских Студентов (RUJS)

The RUJS was established with the support of the World Union of Jewish Students (WUJS).


The Russian Union has been a member of the WUJS since June, 2016.

Foundation of the Russian Union of Jewish Student (RUJS) was initiated in 2015 by Shota Mirelli, president of the MGIMO Jewish Club. It was announced that the aim of the project was to unite and support Jewish students in Russia. The decision to create the Union was made after the meeting of RUJS founders (Shota Mirelli, Ilya Rozentsveyg, Lidia Gangan, and Alexander Latyshev) with Chief Rabbi of Russia Berl Lazar. Shimon Krasnodomskiy was named the Union Rabbi.

The Union was officially founded at the Charity Purim concert at MGIMO-University. The founders of the Union also launched a mentoring program that aimed at helping orphans. Nowadays Jewish clubs from 6 universities make up the Union: MGIMO-University, MSU, MSAL, PFUR, Gubkin Russian State University of Oil and Gas and Financial University.
