WHAT IS USY?
United Synagogue Youth is an International Conservative Jewish youth group for 7th-12th grade teens. Our chapter of Beth El USY is divided into Jr. USY (7th and 8th) and Sr. USY (9th-12th), where we have become a close knit group that participates in Lounge nights; Far West Regional Kinnusim; and social weekend programming like dances, a Disneyland trip, camping and a USY Shabbaton. USY provides participants with a strong Jewish identity and an incredible social network of Jewish friends. Participants are not only given unbeatable leadership opportunities, but are also introduced to religious learning, a connection with Israel, and the importance of tikkun olam, each fostering a connection to a greater Jewish community. USY also offers summer trips to Israel as well as various bus trips which introduce Jewish values and tradition.
Becoming one of our “Beth El-ephants” gives USYers the opportunity to attend our own chapter events as well as be a part of our larger region of 2,000 Jewish teens. Beth El USY is part of our larger region of Far West USY. Scroll down for information on Regional Events!
