The Haverim youth group offers fun, interactive, creative programs for students. The children will participate in activities that increase their appreciation of holidays and mitzvot while having fun and building friendships. Haverim meets once a month.

Kadima - 5th -7th Grades
Our successful Kadima group offers a mix of programming for our preteens. Activities focus on social interaction and social action while having lots of fun! Kadima members enjoy activities with other local chapters and participate in regional activities and Shabbatot. Kadima meets one to two times per month.

United Synagogue Youth (USY) 8th -12th Grades

Our award winning chapter keeps our teens busy and happy! USYers help plan their own activities – everything from pure fun to fundraising, educational, mitzvah and religious projects. Our kids meet new friends from throughout the region by attending dances, playing in the basketball league and attending weekend conventions. USYers have the opportunity to meet other teens from throughout North America by participating in such programs as International Convention in December and USY on Wheels (a cross country teen tour trip) or USY Pilgrimage (to Israel and beyond) during the summer. USY meets two to three times a month.
