The Concept

One week abroad with jews from all over the world.
It's what you've been wanting for summer!

Summer U is a yearly event providing the best that summer has to offer. Jumping in the pool, partying through the night, awesome activities and sports, interesting seminars you care about and doing it all with friends old and new from across the globe.

It is the event that brings together young Jewish students and professionals (18-30 years old) from all over Europe and beyond, every year for the past 33 years!

This year, grab your friends and get ready for sun and the best food money can buy … we’re going to Italy

Affordable Summer with great people: On Summer U you create your own experience. Choose from one of four programme tracks tackling issues that are relevant to today’s young Jews, play sports, hang out by our private outdoor pools and party all night long with new friends. On Summer U, every day is exceptional.

Summer U by the European Union of Jewish Students (EUJS). EUJS is a pluralistic, inclusive and non-partisan umbrella organisation that supports Jewish student unions throughout Europe and represents its members in international institutions and organisations. Founded in 1978, we currently have 35 member organisations, spanning from Russia to Portugal; Bulgaria to the United Kingdom.

EUJS seeks to strengthen Jewish communities and European society through student activism and advocacy. Therefore, EUJS connects peer-led, independent Jewish student unions throughout Europe and supports them in fulfilling the aspirations of the Jewish people, developing Jewish religious, spiritual, cultural and social heritage and ensuring continuity.


Our resort in Italy is Europe’s treasure. In the most picturesque environment you’d want to spend your summer in, you’ll find the best holiday destination waiting for you.

You get to choose from four programme tracks. You decide what’s important to you! As a vital part of the young European Jewish community, you’ll get the knowledge, tools and support to build our Jewish future on the continent with a whole network of new amazing friends.

Summer U is the perfect event in the most historic of settings. Make Summer U #32 even more epic. We’re bringing to you the best mix of empowering tools and fun summer parties with your Jewish friends!
