18 Under 18 Honoree: Chase Flagel

Jewish Atlanta 2020's 18 Under 18 Honoree: Chase Flagel, 17, Walton High School

Chase’s leadership, compassion for others and commitment to inspire other to be involved is unique for someone of any age. Chase has volunteered or taken the initiative himself in every aspect of his life: school, synagogue and extra-curricular activities. With each, he has impacted each organization and made them more attractive for his Jewish peers to feel a part of, but even more importantly, to be engaged and to contribute themselves. Chase has used his platform on the regional board of BBYO to re-energize passion and excitement for BBYO and Judaism for his Jewish peers in areas around Atlanta. His goal is to inspire and reach as many Jewish teens as possible to help them find a place where they feel included and are socially thriving. Chase also has a passion for music and is a song leader in two Friday night music groups where he plays the cajon and piano. He loves the aspect of community prayer driven by music as well as connecting congregants from multiple generations.
