Regional Spotlight: HaNer

Posted on December 19, 2019

Editors’ Note: This year, Achshav has visited every single region in USY. We started way back in April in the host region for IC, Far West USY, and since then we have learned a little bit about each region across the continent. Every region has had its chance to shine; every region, except the newest Continue Reading »

Regional Spotlight: CHUSY

Posted on December 16, 2019

Editors’ Note: Ana B’CHUSY! C-H-U-S-Y! In the heart of the midwest on the shore of Lake Michigan, Chicago Region USY sits proud (they also are in Milwaukee and Madison, or so we have heard). Whether they are cheering on their beloved Cubs, or arguing with METNY over what kind of pizza is superior, CHUSY is Continue Reading »

Regional Spotlight: Tzafon

Posted on December 10, 2019

Editors’ Note: Ding-a-ling, ding-a-ling, ding-a-ling Tzafon! In Upstate New York, with Crocs aplenty, Tzafon USY stands tall. Today, Tzafon’s Sophie Scheer tells us about Tzafon’s tight-knit community, and how they are always working to expand it. Tzafon is a small but mighty region. We always get close with one another and make new friends. We Continue Reading »

Regional Spotlight: New Frontier

Posted on November 8, 2019

Editors’ Note: Coming from Northern California and Reno, Nevada, New Frontier USY always announces themselves by screaming “HELLA NEW FROOOOO!!!” These Golden State Warriors are incredibly enthusiastic about their closing circle. Avi Shapiro describes it today in our latest Regional Spotlight. “Whenever I say ‘Warm Fuzzy,’ say ‘Awweeeee’ and whenever I say ‘Cold Prickly,’ say Continue Reading »

Regional Spotlight: SWUSY

Posted on November 4, 2019

Editors’ Note: *To the tune of Old Town Road by Lil Nas X* I’m gonna take my horse to the old South West (USY)/ I’m gonna buy ‘til I can’t no more/ They’ve got the best senior auction/ Hailing from branch 6/ Cowboys all around/ Got a cactus on the ground/ NOLA, Texas, Oklahoma/ They Continue Reading »

Regional Spotlight: HaNegev

Posted on October 30, 2019

Editors’ Note: It is fitting that the southeast region of USY is named after a desert. For northerners like the Achshav Blog Coordinators, the “winters” of HaNegev are basically the same as our summers. HaNegev, of course, doesn’t care what other regions think. Spanning 3 subregions, 8 states, and hundreds of members, HaNegev USY has Continue Reading »

Regional Spotlight: Mizrach

Posted on October 27, 2019

Editors’ Note: From greater Philadelphia born and raised, in the synagogue is where Mizrach spends most of its days, they don’t eat cheesesteaks unless they are vegetarian (because they’re not kosher), but love Wawa hoagies are Eagles games. Still proud of their 2018 Super Bowl Win, Harris A, Reena BG, and Harris J bring you Continue Reading »

Regional Spotlight: Seaboard

Posted on October 2, 2019

Editors’ Note: As the only region with a basketball league, Seaboard’s unique qualities add to the beauty of the region. From the United States’ capitol in DC, to North Carolina, Maddy Pollack brings you the region that is obsessed with Old Bay. She writes about their Encampment and how incredible Seaboard Saturday nights are. Imagine Continue Reading »

Regional Spotlight: ECRUSY

Posted on September 25, 2019

Editors’ Note: Up in the great white north lies a land where maple syrup runs amuck and apologies are basically social handouts. Canadian stereotypes aside, ECRUSY has long been USY’s only region entirely in Canada. You would know this if you’ve ever talked to anyone from their region, they wear it like a badge. ECRUSY Continue Reading »

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. In the Tri-State area, where the only correct way to eat pizza is folded over, and the USYers are probably late to convention because the subway is delayed again, METNY region reigns Continue Reading »
