Upcoming member programs:

Member Webinars

November 19 & December 10: We will explore the topic: Israel, the “Jewish” state? What does it mean for Israel to be both a Jewish and democratic/modern state within the developed western world? Club members will join together for conversations about Rabbanut control in the Israeli government, what it means to be Jewish and/or secular in Israel, the complexities of Israeli marriage law, and more.

International Convention Chalutzim Late Night Session

December 24 at 10:30PM: In the midst of USY’s biggest celebration of the year, we’ll come together to wrap up conversation on our topic and try to answer the questions: What’s next? What can we do now?

Chalutzim is an enrichment club for those who wish to be a part of a community and participate in more in-depth conversations about Israel.

Chalutzim means “pioneers,” in Hebrew, referring to the settlers who created the early Israeli state. Just like the first settlers, by being the change we wish to see around us and speaking out about what we can do to secure Israel’s future, we too are pioneers.

Chalutzim is…

  • A place where USYers can openly debate and talk about issues related to Israel
  • Israel-based education for those who want to go beyond programming already offered in chapters and regions
  • A network of USYers, online and in-person, who love Israel and wish to find solutions to the issues it faces every day
What are the benefits of membership?
  • Exclusive online discussion groups focusing on different Israel-related topics
  • Member-only late night programming at regional fall conventions
  • A member-only late night program at International Convention
  • Access to closed Facebook group to continue the conversation in between online sessions and conventions
  • Subscriber emails from the Israel Affairs International General Board about Israel as a “Jewish” state and what that means
Who can join?

Chalutzim is open to any member of USY who loves and is interested in Israel.
