About Us

United Synagogue Youth and Kadima inspire Jewish youth to explore, celebrate and practice ethical values, Jewish Living, Zionism and community responsibility based on the ideology of the Conservative Movement.

Whether it be a weekday USY Program, a USY Summer Program or convention, USY has something for YOU. For 60 years, USY has been involving and educating Jewish teens across North America, teaching them about life, friendship, religion and leadership while changing their lives forever.

Why does the world need USY? Is it the people, the leaders, the programming, the innovations, the teachings or all of the above?

From leadership training to social programming on a chapter level to community service and Israel Advocacy or seeing the world outside your area code on a USY on Wheels, USY Israel Pilgrimage or International Convention, USY has something you want.
