Emily Dana grew up at Beth Emet The Free Synagogue in Evanston, IL. She has attended Olin-Sang-Ruby Union Institute (OSRUI) and is now involved in her temple youth group (TYG) and NFTY’s Chicago Area Region. When we saw this video that Emily posted to YouTube about why she loves youth group, we had to share it with you!
Here’s what Emily had to say about why she made this video:
“I have been going to Jewish camp since I was 9 years old, and when I discovered youth group in eighth grade, it was like camp was all year round. I got to see my camp friends and to make new friends as well. Also, I got to learn about social action and myself simultaneously. Youth group is one of the most important things in my life, and that’s why I tried to articulate its power in my life.”
