For the past 70 years, thousands of USYers have come together to create bonds that stretch far beyond their high school years. We are inspired by stories of the friend you first met during a ruach-filled Shabbat service, who sang those same songs at your wedding. We are amazed by our former USY leaders who are now leaders on their college campus, in their synagogue, at their workplace, or in their community at large. We are heart-warmed over the ways our alumni have remained connected, as they continue to share milestones and memories.
As we celebrate 70 years of USY, we strive to strengthen our USY Alumni community. We hope you will participate in our fun events, meaningful learning experiences, nostalgic reunions, important giving opportunities and much more. We look forward to engaging with you as we re-kindle old friendships, as well as help provide the magical USY experience for the next generation.
For more information about any of our activities and initiatives, please contact Joyce Juda, USY Alumni Director, at [email protected], or Elyssa Ronik, USY Alumni Coordinator/ NY Area Coordinator at [email protected].
Based on a well known midrash that speaks to the multitude of ways that people can find meaning in Torah, 70 Faces of USY will tell the stories of USY alumni who were not only impactful during their time in USY, but have made their mark on the world since.
You can honor these stories and the power of the USY experience for Jewish teens of the past, present, and future by making a contribution to USY’s Annual Fundraising Campaign.
