– “The Sapphire Standard,” Developed by USY leadership in 2016
USY strives to foster the next generation of passionate, committed Jewish leaders. USY leadership is both elected and appointed, signifying that there are many on-ramps to serve our organization.
We offer several leadership opportunities on the local, regional, and international levels. The teens devoted to serving their Jewish peers:
- Commit to a very high standard of Jewish living and are role models within their kehillot (Jewish communities inside and outside the walls of a synagogue)
- Plan and implement high quality, impactful programming in their regions and beyond
- Channel their passion to inspire thousands of teens to seek meaning together
