Today is December 15, 2017 -


9th – 12th grade students are invited to join USY, a youth group created to meet the social and spiritual needs of Jewish teens. USYers plan their own activities, meeting on rotating Thursday evenings and usually at least one weekend program each month.

USY activities offer a variety of social, spiritual, cultural, educational, community and religious components. Highlights of the year include regional conventions, the Purim carnival, lock-ins, and lounge nights!
