Maury Jacobs

Southwest United Synagogue Youth Regional Director: Maury Jacobs


Maury was born in Dallas, Texas and grew up at Congregation Beth Torah (Rashi USY). Maury was very involved in SWUSY and held various leadership roles. Maury also served as AAUSY co-advisor for four years before becoming SWUSY Regional Director in 2011.

When Maury isn’t working on USY, he enjoys reading books, playing board games (Settlers of Catan is a favorite!), and spending time with friends and family. His favorite Jewish holiday is Pesach and his favorite color is blue! Maury would love to hear from you if you have any questions about SWUSY, USY, Summer Programs, Nativ, etc, and he is always happy to help with brainstorming, programming, and problem solving when asked! Maury is extremely excited to work towards making this the best year SWUSY has ever seen!

When asked where he would hide a giraffe, he responded that he would not hide it because giraffes are too awesome to keep hidden away!
