Functioning in thirty seven American
states and five Canadian provinces and
with a vibrant program here in De-
troit. NCSY has grown into one of the
largest and most active Jewish youth
movements in the world.

From Vancouver to Miami . . . from
Montreal to Los Angeles . . . NCSY is
changing communities, restoring -hope,
rekindling the fervor of young people
from committed homes, and reaching
out to those who never tasted from the
deep well-springs of our Tradition.

IS IT nearly three hundred regional
and district seminars, Camps, Shabba-
tons, Conclaves and Leader's Institutes
attended by over 25,000 each year; or is
it a sixteen year old who has made a
secret pledge to remain a loyal Jew?

IS IT tears at the Western Wall dur-
ing the Israel Summer Seminar; or is
it one determined girl who was the
first teenager in her community to re-
fuse to take the College Boards on
Shabbat and demanded the opening of
a Sunday Testing Center?

IS IT 800 young people gathered at
National Convention from nearly every
community in North America reaf-
firming their loyalty to Torah; or is it

IS IT the thousands of letters between
teenagers and the young collegiate ad-
visors they met at an educational event
carrying messages of hope and
strength to a generation that is pre-
pared to declare its loyalty to Torah
living; or is it a seventeen year old girl
who has refused a non-Jewish date be-
cause NCSY offered an alternative to a
life filled with dead ends.

Literally thousands have been in-
spired to return to Jewish tradition
and enter schools of Torah study. But
even more significant is the undeniable
evidence that a massive return of Jew-
ish youth to our heritage is necessary,
feasible, and in many parts of our con-
tinent, a realized fact.

Susan Kendler

NCSY has tapped the unique human
resources of the Yeshiva movement to
infuse spiritual and intellectual di-
rection into a vast nationwide program
of Jewish rediscovery. This has re-
sulted in an effective Jewish renais-
sance among tens of thousands of al-
ienated youth.
