Cayla - President

Helloooooo CBI, I’m Cayla Rose Guili and I am so hyped to be your 2021-2022 Chapter President!! I’m working hard as a Junior this year, but when the textbooks are away I’m pretty easy to find in my room, at four am, writing my next hit song. During the day I’m always in the recording studio, finding new friends in the most random places (I’m looking at you Starbucks line), reading a good book and ALWAYS doing something new and creative. USY is my home away from home, and I’m so I get to share this home with so many amazing people. Let’s make our flame of Ruach burn brighter than ever before! It’s gonna be dope ;)

Hello my name is Ari Bilewitz and I am the Kadima VP for this year! I’m so excited to be Kadima VP this year because I can’t wait to plan fun events for our Machar and Kadima kids.

Leah - Communications Vice President

After a fantastic summer of relaxation and Jewish camp, Leah is super excited to be the new Communications VP for this year!! She has been a part of CBI for just over a year and has loved every second. When not with her USY family, Leah can be found at school, horseback riding, or spending time with her family.

Jacob - Special Projects Chair

Hi I’m Jacob Blum, and I am proud to serve as your Special Projects Chair this year. I’m going into my senior year at Beckman High School and I play soccer. I like to skateboard and surf and I’m super enthusiastic. I'm super psyched for this year of USY, because hopefully everything will be more open than previous years and we can find "normalcy" again. I can't wait to get back to what USY is all about, with in-person interaction and having an all around great time!
