I really enjoy JSU. I feel so comfortable there and the discussions are really interesting. I love our leader and the interesting topics we explore. I'm glad there is someplace I can finally be open about my Judaism and share it with those who don't practice at home.

I am a member of the JSU at Walter Payton College Prep, and I always look forward to attending the fun and informative weekly meetings. This past week, an Israel soldier came to speak with us about her experiance in this mandatory army. I have relatives in Israel and am interested in becoming a lone soldier in Israel, and our speaker was so supportive and helpful. I know my Jewish Identity would not be the same without JSU!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The epic Gaga tournements!

I hosted JSU students at my house for a Shabbat dinner and simply listening to how JSU has impacted their lives as young Jews and as young adults as a whole, brightened my Jewish spirit.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Exceptional and highly attuned to the needs of the students and the community.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

seriously impact the future Jewish community; one that already exists and one that would be created out of the previously unaffiliated youth that become connected through JSU.
