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 »

Regional Spotlight: Hagalil

Posted on June 13, 2019

Editor’s Note: If you have been to IC, or any international function for that matter, then you know that any clap you hear is usually preceded by, “She’s from Hagalil!” Our next regional spotlight stop is the North Jersey region, Hagalil, a region known for its sweatpants and flash mobs at IC. Read why Edan Continue Reading »

Regional Spotlight: CRUSY

Posted on May 17, 2019

Editor’s Note: Guys, I don’t think you understand how excited I am for y’all to read this. I’ve spent the last three years with the quirky region in the Great Lake states known as Central Region USY. Since then, CRUSY has been my life. In February 2017, I fell in love with this region.  CRUSY Continue Reading »

Regional Spotlight: Emtza Region USY

Posted on May 17, 2019

Editor’s Note: In between the East and West Coast regions, in the middle of the country, the Emtza region reigns. Passing cornfields on the way to a convention is not uncommon, and farmer jokes are constantly made. The region that started it all is the next stop on our regional spotlight tour, and their very Continue Reading »
