United Synagogue Youth (USY), the youth movement of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism (USCJ), brings the joy of Judaism to life for teens, inspiring them to deepen their Jewish practice, become leaders, make a positive impact on the world, and develop lasting connections to their Jewish identities.

USY, for grades 9-12, and Kadima, a program of USY for preteens, grades 6-8, allow your teens to engage other Jewish youth with fun, meaningful experiences based on the ideology of Conservative Judaism.

USY helps keep teens (and their parents) involved long beyond their b’nai mitzvah years.
