President’s Corner: March

Shalom and Purim Sameach from USY, 
In the spirit of Purim, I invite you to embark on a journey of self-discovery and introspection, exploring the theme of masks – both literal and metaphorical – that play a central role in the Purim narrative and resonate deeply with our own lives. 
Just as we don colorful costumes and whimsical masks during Purim festivities, disguising our outward appearance, we also navigate the world with our metaphorical masks, presenting different facets of ourselves to the public. Whether it’s the confident exterior we project to the world or the vulnerabilities we conceal behind a smile, we all wear masks to navigate the complexities of life.
Yet, beneath these outward personas lies our true essence – our innermost selves, unmasked and unfiltered. As we celebrate Purim, let us embrace the opportunity to peel back the layers and explore the authentic selves that lie beneath the surface. Let us reflect on the masks we wear and the roles we play, and uncover the beauty of our true identities.  
Chag Purim Sameach!
