USY Update

Our teens have really risen to the occasion during this strange time. Despite the disappointment many of them feel with events they’ve been looking forward to all year canceled, they’ve pulled together as a team to create incredible distance programming for CBI USY.

Our teens are coming to Zoom lounges and finding ways to make a virtual retreat happen. They are planning Havdallah Club on Zoom or Instagram Live, and they are doing collective movie nights over Netflix Party. Our teens are finding ways to give Israel, SA/TO, and Torah updates through social media. They are planning to-go craft kits and at-home challenges for our Machar and Kadima children. They have more and more creative ideas by the hour.

Most importantly, our board members are keeping their spirits up, supporting our CBI USY program, and truly showing their leadership skills.

All I can say is how proud I am of our teens, and how excited I am to help implement their online programs so we can finish the year strong.

Wishing everyone a Chag Pesach Sameach,

Emily
