Sawyer (S.) Goldsmith  

Pronouns: They/He

Hello to all! My name is Sawyer Goldsmith, but you can call me Sawyer, S, Goldsmith or a combination of any of the three. If you know me, you know that I LOVE to pray. And, I don’t mean this ironically. Praying is a very meaningful experience for me, and I am hoping to make it meaningful to you too. Praying is not just about God, as yes, I too, am struggling with my relationship with God. Religion and Education in lieu to praying are about several different aspects of life that I hope I can get to help you, as well as myself understand.

Outside of praying, I can be found playing one of my various instruments, including viola, piano, guitar and ukulele. I can also be found sketching on some paper or painting on a canvas. Music and art is a major part of my life, and also helps influence, (take a guess), my religion and education!! I am also very involved in the LGBTQ+ community, as I am both transgender and queer. I hope to build the bridge between the Jewish and queer communities. I come from the mighty BEANS USY and go to school at Rochelle Zell Jewish High School. I have been involved in BEANS since sixth grade, where I served as Kadima Secretary, Kadima President, Freshman Rep, and Rel/Ed. BEANS has been there for we when I have needed it most, and it has shaped my USY experience immensely.  I am beyond excited to help enhance all of your Jewish experiences this year, and I hope you can all learn a lot!

If you have any questions or just want to say hey you can contact me at reled@chusy.org !

L’Hitraot!
