My Unusual Approach To USY Leadership

Posted on September 23, 2019

Editors’ Note: When it comes to USY leadership, one of the most commonly thrown around questions is “What position are you?” Frankly, that is not really a good question.

Shabbat Around The World

Regional Spotlight: METNY USY

Posted on September 10, 2019

Editor’s Note: The METNY region is sort of an anomaly in USY. They are the smallest geographically, yet their membership numbers stand tall.
