Aberdeen USY (AUSY), our youth group for high school students, meets twice a month on Sunday evenings. AUSY is a self-governing group that elects an executive board every spring. The AUSY Board and USY advisor, Rebecca, work together to plan and develop social, educational, recreational, and religious programs for its members.

AUSY strives to make the world a better place by helping out in the synagogue, undertaking social action initiatives, and organizing fundraisers for the International USY charity, Tikun Olam.  AUSY members actively participate in Hagalil USY regional events including dances, kinnusim (Shabbat weekend conventions), and Hagalil USY Encampment. Members also attend international USY programs such as USY International Convention, USY on Wheels, and USY Israel Pilgrimage. AUSY has been recognized by the Hagalil region for increased membership and per capita contribution to Tikun Olam, and has received regional awards including “Most Improved Chapter”, and “Chapter of Excellence”. 

The Temple Beth Ahm Youth Commission oversees the planning and execution of USY programming. For further information about youth activities, contact Maurie Backman, Temple Beth Ahm Youth Commission Chair, at TBAYOUTHCOMMISSION@TEMPLEBETHAHM.ORG

President: Amanda Goldwasser

My name is Amanda Goldwasser, I am a senior at Freehold Boro High School for the Culinary Arts program. I will be the President for the 2018-19 year. My passions include dance, baking, and USY. I am a competitive dancer and I help teach tap and jazz classes at my dance studio. I love to make new baking recipes at home for my family. Lastly I love going to USY events, both regional and chapter, to see all of my friends. In my free time I enjoy reading science fiction, I am a huge Potterhead and I continue to reread the series.

Hi AUSY! My name is Erik Josephson. I am so excited to be your MEM/PROG for the 2018-2019 school year. I am a JEWnior at Marlboro High School and I am a cool cat and am always here to talk. Can’t wait to meet all of you!!







Freshman Representative: Melissa Neglio

I am a freshman at Old Bridge High School. I am a competitive swimmer and I hope to go to the Olympics one day. I have competed in the Junior Maccabia Games and won a medal. I love going to USY events and can’t wait to take part in all of the fun conventions this year. I enjoy being with friends, family, going to the beach and shopping of course. I have a wicked sense of humor, and look forward to planning great events for AUSY this year as the freshman rep.





USY Advisor: Rebecca Glinn

Shalom Temple Beth Ahm! My name is Rebecca Glinn and I am excited and honored to be the new advisor for the Aberdeen USY chapter. I will be engaging with our community’s youth while working towards a Master of Public Policy at Rutgers University. Four years ago I was an active USYer for the Metuchen chapter, serving on chapter board for two years and on Regional Executive Board my senior year as Israel Awareness Vice President. These experiences have not only enhanced my high school career but have set me up for success as an undergraduate student at the University of Delaware. Most importantly, I’ve made connections with people that are still my very best friends to this day. Some fun things about me, I love to read and watch The Office, and have a HUGE fear of seagulls! Come meet me, and your new best friends at Aberdeen USY!
