Jewish Communist Youth Union (Russian: Еврейский коммунистический союз молодежи, Evreĭskiĭ kommunisticheskiĭ soiuz molodezhi, abbreviated EKSM or Евкоммол, Evkommol) was the youth wing of the Jewish Communist Party (Poalei Zion) in Russia.[1] The first All-Russian convention of the organization took place 23–27 January 1920 in Moscow.[1] The All-Russian conference of the organization took place 1–4 September 1920 in Kharkov.[1]

The organization published Evkommol ('Евкоммол').[1]

Evkommol fiercely opposed the Yevsektsiya, the Jewish Section of the Russian Communist Party (Bolsheviks).[2]
