There are few publications, particularly in the Jewish world, that can claim to have sold over a million-and-a-half copies as The NCSY Bencher has done. The Bencher, which has guided joyous singing at weddings, bar mitzvahs, and many Shabbatonim for nearly 25 years, is now being revised. The goal of the revision is to add new songs and new versions of old songs to the widely distributed compilation. NCSY Alumni, the organization of thousands of NCSY graduates, is sponsoring the revisions and welcoming the input of anyone who has internet access and an interest in a wide variety of Jewish melodies.

The A.I.R is an NCSY-style Shabbaton for adults, in which NCSY Alumni, the OU Young Leadership Cabinet (YLC), and new friends will join for an uplifting and unforgettable Shabbat.
