Meet CHUSY's 


Regional Executive Board

Geoffrey Gitles

CHUSY President


Hey CHUSY! I started USY back in 8th grade at my first Kinnus. From that convention, I fell in love with this amazing region. I met my beset and closest friends because of USY, and because of that, this year I've decided to give back to the region as the CHUSY President! Outside of USY I'm very involved in Model UN, and I do a lot of art in my free time. Last year, I worked with Ariana Handelman as the 8th Grade Shabbaton co-chairs, and I'm so excited to get to work with her again this year! I can't wait for an amazing year with all of you.

Stephanie Kallish

CHUSY Israel Affairs VP


Hi my name is Stephanie and I am your Israel Affairs Vice President. My favorite city in Israel is Jerusalem (I know super basic) but it is actually the most incredible place in the world. When I am not at USY you will probably find me playing Mahjong. If you want to learn how to play I will teach you! I also really like to cook, journal and contemplate the meaning of life. If any of you have found any answers, please let me know. I cannot wait for a 194gra8 year, in which we can shape our Israel identities while enhancing our knowledge and understanding of this place. Whenever I feel sad that I am not Israeli I tell people that my blood is made up of water from the Dead Sea. I would probably be dead if this was true, but it's a nice thought. This year is gonna be Israeli amazing.
