More than 3,000 Jewish teens from 54 countries came together Sunday in Westbury to show unity.
The C-Teen International Jewish Teen summit was held at NYCB Theater.
This year's theme was "Count On Me," emphasizing each individual's ability to make a difference.
Organizers said they hope to inspire future generations of Jewish leaders by featuring teens who have responded to hate with positive actions.
Participants also spoke about the importance of battling the rise in antisemitism.
"Speaking on the topic of Oct. 7, I think this just shows how all of us Jews need to stand together and keep together as a community to support each other, no matter what," said Alexa Ross, of Stony Brook.
"There are a lot of people out there who don't like us just because we are Jewish and we just have to support each other and stay strong," added Rory Einstien, also of Stony Brook.
There were multiple speakers at the event, which also included some victims of the Nova musical festival massacre.
