TRSTY Executive Board


Sarah Kazden

Sarah has been doing TRSTY since the beginning of ninth grade. Through the years Sarah has held the position of Programming Chair and PVP. Sarah LOVES NFTY-MAR with her whole entire heart and could talk about it for ages and ages so please come talk to her about it. This summer Sarah attended the URJ Kutz camp where she learned valuable leadership skills she will take back with her to TRSTY. Finally Sarah, loves gardening (even though she’s not good at it), swimming, green melon, Oreos, Cheerios, and laughing at tourists who film the metro coming into the station (even though it’s not very nice). Sarah hopes to get to meet you and know you better this year!

Noa Glashow has been a TRSTY board member since her sophomore year and is excited to continue creating programs, educating Jewish teens and having fun! Last year she was 10th grade representative and is now incredibly enthusiastic to have been voted in as programming Vice President! Education, culture, and connection are extremely important to Noa and she loves to share that with others and have an impact on her community. When she’s not busy enjoying Jewish culture, Noa likes to participate in competitive gymnastics, play tennis and travel with her family!

Social Action Vice President

Mia Shenkman

Mia Shenkman was inspired by the motivated teens who led a great event at her first TRSTY event in 8th grade, and has been involved ever since. After being on board as Junior Youth Group Chair for one year, Mia decided she would love to help teens learn about issues in the world and show how they can play a role in their communities, as Social Action Vice President. Mia also plays the trumpet in jazz and marching bands, loves hiking and canoeing any where she can, and is very interested in disability rights as well as food sustainability!

Emily Simon

Emily Simon has been involved in TRSTY since she first attended Thevent at TRS as an eighth grader. In the spring semester of her sophomore year, she deepened her connection to Judaism by attending URJ Heller High School in Israel, and she is excited to bring back all that she has learned to TRSTY. Before she left, though, she was a madricha at TRSRS. When she’s not planning TRSTY events, Emily can be found attending classes at McLean High School, watching the Nationals, and practicing guitar.
