On Tu B’Shvat, Jewish teens were invited to an afternoon of music and inspiration with Jewish music superstar Nissim Black, hosted by the Orange County branch of NCSY (the flagship youth movement of the Orthodox Union) and JSU (Jewish Student Union, NCSY’s network of Jewish clubs at public high schools). Nissim inspired the 50 teens in attendance with the incredible story of his upbringing and journey to finding God and Judaism.He answered questions about Israel, shared his encounters with antisemitism and then treated the group to a private concert. The event was made possible by the generous support of a private donor and partnership with CTeen (Chabad Teen Network) and Tarbut V’Torah Community Day School in Irvine, Calif.

NCSY runs weekly programs for teens to connect, inspire and empower the Jewish future. To learn more about ongoing programs, contact Orange County NCSY Director Shlomo Simpser at simpsers@ncsy.org.
