Bayer, AbeHey USY! My name is Abe Bayer and I am honored to serve as your International Membership/Kadima Vice President. I come from the Hanefesh region, specifically the Manchester USY chapter, and have lived in Connecticut my whole life. I am beyond excited for this year and can’t wait to wait work the IEB to make USY the best it can be!

This year, my IGB and I are going to be working hard to make membership numbers soar and get the world excited about USY and Kadima. We will be making the best recruitment and programming resources available to all of USY, so the phrase “Everyone is a Mem/Kad” can truly become a reality. By making stronger connections with Ramah camps, Schecter schools, and reaching out to old chapters, we will spread USY like wildfire throughout North America!

Everybody has their USY story. Let’s share them with every potential member we know. Let’s increase membership and impact even more Jewish teens with the incredible organization we have built. Let’s change lives. It starts with every one of you, and a story.

Feel free to e-mail me any time if you have questions about chapter or regional membership, programming, and Kadima. I love to meet new people and hear their USY stories.
