United Synagogue Youth, also known as USY, offers programming for Jewish children. USY consists of chapters and regions from all across the United States and Canada. USY’s mission is to empower Jewish youth to develop friendships, leadership skills, a sense of belonging to the Jewish People, a deep engagement with and love for Israel, and a commitment to inspired Jewish living through meaningful and fun experiences based on the ideology of Conservative Judaism. This is part of the New England Regional chapter of HaNer.
