We decide!
Participate, discuss and shape your future:
jewpa - the 1st Jewish Youth Parliament of Switzerland wants to initiate engagement. It is an event of the Swiss Union of Jewish Students (SUJS) in cooperation with the umbrella organizations SIG and PLJS as well as most of the Swiss Jewish communities.

The aim of the newly formed parliament is that Jewish people (including children of a Jewish father and people in the conversion process) between the ages of 16 and mid-30 come together to identify their specific concerns and finally, by consensus, contradiction or compromise, define the opinion of their generation and pass it on to the established institutions.

​The 1st Jewish Youth Parliament of Switzerland gives you the exclusive opportunity to change your future as a Jewish person in Switzerland.

We are debating with the support of Swiss politicians and in the presence of representatives of the Jewish communities and the umbrella or
ganizations SIG and PLJS:
  • Are our communities still up-to-date or completely obsolete?
  • What do I expect from a Jewish community?
  • How should we deal with important topics such as intermarriage, conversion or anti-Semitism?
