WHAT IS NCSY ALUMNI?
NCSY is the premier organization dedicated to connect, inspire and empower Jewish teens and encourage passionate Judaism through Torah and Tradition. As a complement to the NCSY high school programming, NCSY continues to connect alumni of NCSY and JSU to authentic Jewish experiences after their graduation from high school, whether it be on a gap year program in Israel, or on a college campus.
WHAT IS BikeNCSY?
The first of its kind, Bike NCSY inspires men, women, and teens across the country to become involved in a powerful initiative to raise funds to help NCSY teens afford their gap year experiences. In its inaugural year, the event fundraising goal was impressively surpassed. Through the lens of cycling for Torah, riders were able to tap into their networks and raise significant funds that turn into scholarship money for NCSYers looking to make a gap year a reality for themselves. The Bike NCSY experience not only raised awareness for one of NCSY’s core missions— to connect teens to their gap year experiences in Israel, but also brought together a strong community of alumni and supporters for an enjoyable day that puts NCSY programming at the forefront of their minds.
