CHUSY Kinnus FAQs
What is USY?
USY is the name of our Jewish youth group for High Schoolers (8th graders are invited to join USY after January 1st)
in which teens can come together to learn about various ways to connect their
Jewish identity to their everyday lives through dynamic ice breakers, fun and diverse programming, cultural activities, and conventions.
All of these opportunities are available on both the synagogue and regional level.
To learn more, contact your synagogue today and ask about their USY chapter!
