Hola Hagalil! My name is Gaby Roth (feel free to switch it up – Gabs, G-
Money,Yo Gabba Gabba, Gabadabadoo; I’m chill with anything)! I am
thrilled and honored to serve as your Hagalil Regional President for this
delicious 2012-2013 year. I come from the mighty town of North Caldwell,
New Jersey (Caldwell is Grover Cleveland’s birthplace!). When I’m not
wearing my bright pink fanny pack at USY events, you can find me writing
for my school’s newspaper or eating chocolate peanut butter ice cream
at my favorite place Gelotti, probably still wearing my fanny pack though.
Come to Caldwell and I’ll take you for a night out on the town!
Fun facts: My favorite TV show is “Modern Family,” I love eating lemons (I
ate three at my chapter’s Food Olympics this past year!), I’ve played the
piano for ten years, my favorite ruach song is D’ror Yikra, and I play mah
jongg every Thursday night with the gals. Can you guess which one’s the
I went to Camp Ramah in the Berkshires for seven years, and only missed
one summer. That summer I went on USY on Wheels Classic!!! I can’t
wait to spend another summer with USY this year on USY Poland/Israel
Pilgrimage! If you ever have any questions about summer programs or
Ramah, feel free to ask me!
One thing you may not know about me is that I love to crochet. In fact, I
have a collection of over 30 hand-crocheted turtleneck sweaters that I plan
to sell for SA/TO this year. Not actually, however I truly do crochet. I love to
make kippot and can’t wait to have time to continue to crochet this summer
on Pilgrimage! P.S. Dassy Mark is a fabulous crocheter!
Get pumped for an unforgettable year in Hagalil! Whether you live down
the shore or all the way up North, we all share the fact that we hail from the
sickest region in all of USY. Friend me on Facebook (one of my addictions)
and send me a message! I’ll be sure to say hi at the next convention. Keep
smiling and flaunt that USY swag!
