Religion/Education VP

 Hi Seaboard! My name is Gabi Shapo and I am THRILLED to serve you as your 2017-2018 Religion/Education Vice President! This year, my ultimate goal is to bring every member of Seaboard USY and Kadima closer to our community and religion (and to have fun while doing so!), both inside and outside of convention. I understand that since we are all coming from different backgrounds and levels of observance at home, we must establish programs, materials, and  prayer services that will help each one of us on our own personal journey of developing our Jewish identity.

I want to hear what YOU have to say, and I LOVE making new friends, so please don’t hesitate to come over and talk to me about any questions, comments, suggestions, or even just to say hey! If you’d like to chat while we aren’t at a convention, I’m always here by email as well! I look forward to having a blast with you and the rest of the region while strengthening our connection to the religion that’s connected us together for thousands of years.


And now, some fun facts about me:
