Southwest United Synagogue Youth Regional Director: Maury Jacobs

We would like to introduce everyone to our Regional Director, Maury Jacobs. Maury was born in Dallas,Texas and grew up at Congregation Beth Torah (Rashi USY). Maury’s USY leadership began as the first ever Kadima President at Beth Torah. After his years in Kadima, Maury continued his leadership with many roles in Rashi USY. He also served the region as Communications VP and Programming/Israel VP. During Maury’s college years at The University of Texas at Austin, he became a co-advisor for AAUSY.. He served in this position for four years before becoming our Regional Youth Director.

Maury’s favorite T.V. show of all time is LOST, and his least favorite is pretty much every reality show in existence. When Maury isn’t working on USY, he enjoys reading books, playing video games, 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!
