Thousands of North American teens gather in Israel for NCSY mega-event

July 24, 2019

More than 2,500 Jewish teens, staff and guests from 29 states, Canada, Israel, Argentina and the United Kingdom participating in summer programs operated by the Orthodox Union (OU) converged on Park Ra’anana to nibble on American barbeque and rock to live musical performances at the big Yom NCSY event.

Former Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked attended the event as well, met the participants and spoke at the OU Benefactors Circle Dinner.

“Yom NCSY represents the very essence of what NCSY Summer is all about. At the event it doesn’t matter what your religious background is, it’s about a united non-judgmental, encouraging environment celebrating our shared connections in the home of the Jewish people,” said NCSY Summer Director David Cutler. “The palpable energy, cheering, singing and dancing has made this the highlight of the summer.”
