Leadership Opportunities & The Board

The Temple Aliyah Youth Chapter’s KADIMA, JR USY and SR USY groups offer a wonderful leadership opportunity by being peer-elected to hold office as a Board Member for one (1) school year. Elections occur in May for the positions to be upheld during the following Fall through the Spring school year.

The elected Board members have the responsibility to continuously learn how to be a leader under the supervision of the Youth Director and the advisors. The elected Board members create programs, welcome and encourage others to join, and attend all events. As each of the groups grades increase, the expectations and accomplishments grow, as well, i.e. implementing lounges to coordinating a full Shabbat weekend event.

It is with pleasure to have the honor of announcing our Temple Aliyah’s USY/KADIMA newly elected Board members for this upcoming year. The wonderful and committed children and teens listed below will keep our chapter filled with exciting events, community service opportunities, and lounges for all of our members entering grades 4th through 12th. Please contact us! Get on our email list, on our Temple Aliyah USY FaceBook, and call the Youth Office to find out what fantastic and innovative programs are coming up.
