What Our Alumni Say

Steven Pilchik

Alumni

USY isn't just about praying, and eating kosher, and going to services... It's about the experience and life that you create being a part of a Jewish community.

Daniela Rojzman

Alumni

USY has given me the chance to express myself in ways nothing else has. I have become the strong and independent person I am today because of USY. I feel like I belong and that has led me to stand up for what I believe in and grow as a human being.

Sylvie Finn

It's lets young people that are passionate about being Jewish come together and make [social] change and lifelong friendships.

Robyn Dubinsky

USY is an organization that lets you get connected to the Jewish part of yourself and make amazing friends that become a second family to you. The community is so joyful and welcoming to everyone.

Jullian Burger

It's a safe haven and a place for Jewish teenagers to feel a part of something incredibly special.

Gabriel Rashba

USY is extremely unique because it creates a sense of "family" as Conservative Jewish teens come together in song, prayer, fun, dancing, and much more.

Alexa Goldstein

USY is unique because it makes being Jewish fun. I keep kashrut because of USY and like the person I have become with the help of USY.
