First USY Chapter President, Beth El, Waterbury, CT
First Connecticut Valley Regional President
Past USY International Director
USY provided me the opportunity to teach Torah to thousands of young Jews. My deep love for Israel was strengthened by my summers leading USY Israel Pilgrimage. During these summers I interacted with countless numbers of teenagers from all over North America. USY allowed me to witness the joy on our USYers’ faces as they discovered their own love for Israel. Over the years, one of my greatest thrills has been hosting multitudes of USYers in our home, first in NYC and then in Jerusalem after my wife Nina and I made Aliyah on July 4, 1991.
