Welcome to the South Region!

Our region has the most #yjalove with members coming from the biggest and best states. We represent Texas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Arkansas, and Oklahoma.

Our YJAers are known for their Southern hospitality! As a region, our main goal is to expand our community through religious discussions, social events, and connections with our local sanghs. We have a variety of events throughout the year that span from national dinners to temple clean-ups to college/career panels.

In the South, we are loud and proud about our strong presence at convention and other events. We are also the winners of the first ever Interregional Clothing Drive! It's safe to say that the #DirtySouth is the best region out there.

If y'all have any questions, comments, or suggestions feel free to reach out to Prapti Ghiya at south@yja.org!

To stay up-to date with what’s happening in the South, sign up for reminders straight to your phone and also join our Facebook group!
