Hey CHUSY! My name is Sarah Patton and I am so proud to be serving as your 2017-2018 Regional Israel Affairs Vice President. If you didn’t already know, I hail from the blooming, bonkers, blissful BTUSY nation located in Deerfield, Illinois. I’m beyond excited to work with the REB and all of the chapter IA’s to create informative entertaining programming, keep CHUSY updated on current events and pop culture through the Thursday Israeli updates on the Facebook page and on @CHUSYIA Twitter, and to help each of you find your passion for Israel.
In my free time, I love listening to music, hanging with friends, yoga, and eating kosher snacks. I have attended Camp Chi in Wisconsin since 2012, and I will be a Staff In Training this summer as part of the SIT 17 class. As Israel Affairs Vice President next year, I am excited to see how our region will grow and become even more successful than we already are.
Out of all programs next year, I am most excited for the new innovative Chalutzim Club programs which will take place at conventions! I have made some of my most profound memories and connections to the Jewish homeland at these programs, as well as believing that it is an incomparable experience. You don’t want to miss out on joining us for these revamped Chalutzim programs as well as all the new innovative initiatives I will be implementing this year.
It’s going to be an amazing year and I’m looking forward to all the newfound relationships created between USYers and our Jewish homeland as well as through the NOAM partnership pen-pals program. Don’t hesitate to come find me at conventions or let me know if you need help with anything as I love meeting new people. I’m always available to talk to at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com!
