What a week it has been METNY!
There have been so many events going on, I can't even keep track. First was last week, where my bffl, Josh Uffer, and I went to the 10th/11th grade Shabbaton. We went only expecting to be there for a half an hour, but got sucked into the fun and decided to stay for another two. I munched on some baked ziti, chatted with the future delegates who are running for next year's Regional Board, and brought down the roof by preforming "We Didn't Start the Fire", again with my bffl, Josh Uffer. It was a great night and a ton of fun.
This past week, I also had a meeting Tuesday night, with Rabbi Gordon Yaffe, to discuss our plans for a USY ruach filled weekend at his temple at Little Neck Jewish Center. It's going to be a great weekend (March 21st- 23rd) and I hope to see my peeps from Kiryah, Chazak and Rakevet there.
But there is one that takes the cherry on top of that delicious sundae that is METNY USY and that is Regional Convention. There has already been a great amount of wok that has been put into this event already, and it really is a wonderful theme. Expect a phone call soon from one of your Regional/ Divisional Board members to remind you to sign up for this event. If I have you on my call list, I can't wait to chat, and if not, I will see you at either Kiryah, Chazak, or Koach Kinnus.
It’s that time of the year again; Regional Convention planning!! Even though many of us are on vacation (shout out to my main presidents, George and Abe), our awesome Regional President, Jacob Wasserman, sent out a message to the Regional Board saying that whoever was around should come and help. Even though it was cold and wet, and I had stayed up late to watch Jimmy Fallon on the Tonight Show (love you Jimmy!), I knew that there was work to be done. I left my house, hopped off the subway, walked towards the METNY office, and here I was, ready to start planning. Rachelle helped us lay out a “To-do” list and Jacob disappointed us all by bringing a babka that looked delicious but was pretty underwhelming (kind of like Jacob in a tux…). One of our co-chairs, Jamie Gross, was throwing out great ideas left-and-right, and even began working on some hot promo material. It’s early, but it looks like this RC is gonna be one of the best ones ever. Uh-oh, Rachelle just caught me writing this instead of doing work. Oops! Gotta go for now, but stay tuned for more great RC updates
