My name is Ethan Spencer Feuer and I am elated and humbled to serve as your 2016 USY International President!
I am a proud member of the Metropolitan New York (METNY) Region and East Northport Jewish Center USY Chapter in East Northport, New York. I absolutely love cheap NYC pizza, I am the captain of the Varsity Bowling team at school, my best friend is ultimate frisbee, I read anything and everything that is put in front of me, and I aspire to become a teacher of English or Philosophy.
For the upcoming year, we need to get over our fear of how extraordinarily powerful we can be in each other’s lives. We will redefine USY as being about relationships. How many of them will we create, acknowledge, pay forward, and say thank you for. Once we understand that there is no one USY, rather thousands of understandings of it, our passion, energy, ruach, and purpose will be re-energized.
I’ve quoted this once and I’ll say it all year, “you may only be one person in the world, but you may mean the world to one person.” Let’s change the way we see USY through the beauty of building relationships.
After all USY starts with you: USYers everywhere! If you have an idea, any small thought or revolutionary spark of brilliance, I want to hear it! You have the power to change USY in your own way. I’m simply here to help you be the change.
Finally, let’s be the ones crazy enough to change the world.
Ethan Spencer Feuer
2016 USY International President
