Bear Weitz is originally from Riverdale, New York. He is currently a junior at Touro College, majoring in psychology, while also studying at Yeshiva Shor Yoshuv. While Bear had limited exposure to NCSY during his high school years, he was captivated by the organization’s mission and its commitment to fostering connections among Jewish youth from diverse backgrounds. This past summer, Bear eagerly embraced the opportunity to join the NCSY team as a TJJ advisor, further cementing his dedication to the cause. Bear’s passion for NCSY’s mission, which focuses on strengthening ties within the Jewish community across all spectrums, fuels his enthusiasm for his role within the organization. He is genuinely excited to continue nurturing existing relationships and forging new ones with the students of NCSY, all made possible by the invaluable work of NCSY Shevet Glaubach.
