United Synagogue Youth (USY): 9th-12th-Grades
Our USY chapter is peer-led, with its own board that plans a full schedule of activities, under the guidance of the USY director. There is a dual social-social action focus. In addition to monthly Lounge Nights, geared simply to hanging out, doing homework and “kibitzing,” the chapter runs fun events, such as “Mall Crawl,” Cosmic Bowling; Iron Chef, and Casino Night, a fundraiser. Community service projects have included helping out at the congregation’s Purim Carnival and lending an extra hand at El Al and Kadima events, when needed. With their more sophisticated ritual skills, USY-ers are key players in Youth Shabbat, a yearly highlight on the Temple’s Ritual calendar.
Our teens also participate in activities of the New Jersey HaGalil Region, and a number have become active on the USY national level, as well.
