Rabbi Steven Burg, managing director of the OU and international director of NCSY, moderated a panel at NCSY’s YouthCon, held on August 19 at the Stamford Hilton with more than 500 attendees. The panelists were Richard Joel, president of YU, Ruth Messinger, CEO of American Jewish World Service; and Shimon Waronker, headmaster of the New American Academy. “If we are to survive, our children have to know their story and own their story,” Joel said.

Rabbi Dov Emerson, assistant principal of DRS in Woodmere, wrote, “NCSY and OU clearly appreciate the importance of professionalism in our field, and the experience at YouthCon demonstrated this over and over again.”
