Teen & Youth
usy + Kadima
United Synagogue Youth (USY) is the youth movement of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism (USCJ).
USY is a youth group with members from the United States and Canada dedicated to creating a fun, educational environment where Jewish teenagers can connect in hopes of meeting other Jewish teens in a comfortable atmosphere, combating assimilation, supporting Israel, and giving and performing charity. With a membership of over 15,000 Jewish teens from across North America, USY combines the familiarity of a local synagogue with the excitement and adventure that derives from being an international organization.
USY offers Jewish teens a wide range of exciting activities. Whether it’s a game of basketball on a Sunday afternoon, a holiday carnival for people with mental or physical disabilities, or a six week adventure in Israel or across the US and Canada, USY provides a home away from home filled with friends united by common goals.
