At regional USY events, we gather for a round of spirited singing during shabbat. It's a really fun, high-energy experience called "ruach." On Saturday evenings as we get ready for shabbat to end and the new week to begin, we all sit down for a beautiful, calmer round of singing called "slowach." The songs are pretty easy to catch on to after you've attended a few sessions, but learning them ahead of time can make the experience much more fun.

Our FarWest Region of USY has created a few Youtube videos to help you learn.
