OUR YOUTH IN ACTION!
USY is the national youth group of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism. Our synagogue sponsors a USY chapter for our youth in grades 3-12. We believe Providence USY is special. What makes it so? A great combination of creative programs, fun activities, dedicated parent volunteers, talented staff and outstanding youth!
We are an award winning chapter for many years running on the regional, national and international level. In recent years, we have won awards from NERUSY including: The Silver Chapter of Excellence Award, Most Improved Chapter, Largest Membership Increase, awards for temple USY engagement, and more!
Our USY chapter includes Kadima for 3rd-5th graders, Junior USY for 6th-8th graders, and Senior USY for 9th - 12th graders. USY has three levels: the chapter, th region, and international, each with its own events and activities. Regionally, we are part of “NERUSY,” the New England Region of USY. There are occasional regional Kadima events, but most of the regional events throughout the year are geared towards junior and senior USYers -- teens in our 6th-12th grade age range. Regional events include conventions, dances, a boys’ basketball and girls’ volleyball league, and other special events.
