NCSY Marks 60th Anniversary with Launch of Special Website
NCSY, the Orthodox Union’s consortium of Jewish leadership and identity building programs for high school youth, has launched “60 Days of NCSY,” a website featuring special NCSY content developed to mark the organization’s milestone 60th anniversary.
The website, which will roll out new content daily throughout the months of May and June, includes historical, inspirational, nostalgic, and humorous articles about the NCSY experience; profiles of 60 extraordinary individuals who impacted the lives of NCSYers around the world (chosen by the NCSY alumni and NCSYers they inspired); and an online photo gallery with the largest collection of NCSY photos ever compiled.
The content featured on the “60 Days of NCSY” website was developed by current NCSYers, NCSY alumni, staff and supporters. Visitors to the site are encouraged to submit additional articles and upload pictures to the online photo gallery.
NCSY kicked off its 60th anniversary campaign in January with the release of “Sixty Years of NCSY Havdalah,” a video about the pivotal role that Havdalah has played in the NCSY experience over the years. The organization hopes to mark this milestone in numerous other ways over the coming months, including an enhanced presence at the New York Israel Day Parade, “Advisor Appreciation Night” events, NCSY alumni reunions, a marathon-style “Learn-a-thon,” and the printing of a special edition of the iconic NCSY Bencher.
