J Street U – J Street represents Americans, primarily but not exclusively Jewish, who support Israel and its desire for security as the Jewish homeland, as well as the right of the Palestinians to a sovereign state of their own – two states living side-by-side in peace and security. As the student wing of J Street, J Street U works on campus to promote dialogue about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, run engaging educational programming, and of course have some fun.
