This coming fall, NCSY Southern is relaunching one of the oldest NCSY chapters in the county, Charleston, SC. Jason Daniels will serve as the new Chapter Advisor and will be responsible for coordinating local programming and recruiting participants for regional conventions and international summer programs. NCSY Southern offers many highly successful informal Jewish educational programs. Bringing NCSY back into Charleston will allow high school teens to stay connected to their spiritual roots.

NCSY | Jewish Youth Leadership is the international youth movement of the Orthodox Union.

Todd Cohn, Regional Director of Southern NCSY, declared, “We are very excited about Jason’s arrival. His background, experience, and tremendous enthusiasm and creativity are the perfect combination for an informal educator. It is truly a great time to be in Charleston.”

Jason grew up in Commack, NY, a community on Long Island, where he attended his local public school. He was very active in youth organizations and after attending college, proceeded to study in Israel. In Israel, Jason developed a passion for working with teens and connecting them to God. Together with his wife, Amber, and daughter, Baila, Jason has recently moved back to America and taken on the role of Chapter Advisor for Charleston while simultaneously running a company he started in 2010.

“We are thrilled to be given the opportunity to bring NCSY to Charleston and we are so excited to get started” says Jason. “We hope to create an environment that fosters each teen’s personal growth with the goal of exploring and enlivening his or her Jewish identity.”

“NCSY is very grateful to Rabbi Ari Sytner, Rabbi of Brith Sholom Beth Israel (BSBI) in Charleston, for working so hard to make sure that Charleston’s youth get the very best that NCSY has to offer,” says Todd Cohn.
