We are happy to announce that applications for USYs delegation to AIPAC Policy Conference 2014 are now available at the following link


If you have USYers who are presidents of their school government body, they are entitled to go for free. please have them fill out the link above and note it in the appropriate place. 


We will be reviewing and accepting USYers to the delegation as they apply in a rolling admission. We have limited spaces and we expect them to fill fast, so please let your USYers know that the longer they wait, the less chance they have of getting in.


This year we are trying to reach out also to other USYers who are not going with our delegation. If you have knowledge of USYers going with their school, synagogue or on their own, please have them fill out the following form so that we can let them know of USY activities at AIPAC.


I would suggest you follow the first link if you are interested in reading more about the application process. If you have any further questions please be in touch with Carmiel Frutkoff, USY's International Shaliach.
