Zachary Greenwald

Social Action/Tikun Olam VP

Hi! My name is Zach Greenwald and I am USY’s International Social Action/Tikun Olam Vice President.

I am from the region that started it all, EMZTA – more specifically I’m from Adath Jeshurun USY in the polar vortex of Minneapolis. I went on Eastern Europe/Israel Pilgrimage (I love my #KosherGFries) and am more than happy to talk about #MyUSYSummer.

When I’m not USYing you’ll find me dancing. I perform pom and hip-hop with my high school’s performance team, manage my school’s competition team, and work on lyrical, jazz, and contemporary in the studio.

Fun facts about me:

  • After I get home from school, I drink a FULL glass of milk.
  • All of my friends’ moms love me.
  • Half of my family is Italian, the other half is Lithuanian.
  • Pom is my favorite style of dance.

This year my vision is to give USYers the passion and education regarding SA/TO. Then, give them the tools to engage in whatever kind of Social Action or Tikun Olam they are interested in. It’s important to me that USY caters to USYers, and allows them to create their own action as they see fit. If you have ideas, suggestions, or just wanna talk about some awesome SA/TO stuff, I’d love to chat!

I’m excited for an amazing year with USY!

B’Ahava V’Shalom,

Zach “Greenie” Greenwald
