USY Youth Group

 USY empowers 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.

USY at Ner Tamid continues to build on our 2019 launch! Programs, events, and classes are planned by our USY Board members. Interested? Email jessie@nertamidsd.org for membership and to be added to our mailing list!

Kadima for Pre-Teens

Between Hebrew school and bar/bat mitzvah lessons, it’s easy to stay connected to Jewish life. But what happens next?

Kadima, USY’s program for pre-teens. Kadima is for middle-schoolers with programming closely tied to USY, including recreational activities, holiday celebrations, leadership development, weekend retreats, community service projects and more.

Kadima (forward in Hebrew) offers pre-teens grades 6-8 (varies by region) the opportunity to:

  • Meet new people and have fun
  • Stay engaged in Jewish life and learning once Hebrew school is over
  • Experience the joy of Judaism
  • Develop leadership and social skills

Activities include:

  • Events such as bowling or craft nights
  • Jewish holiday celebrations
  • Community service projects
  • Weekend conventions
  • Encampment (an end of summer sleepaway camp experience)

Ner Tamid Kadima for grades 4 - 7 meets once a month. Kadima events are planned by our Kadima Krew.

USY for grades 7 - 12 meets twice a month. Zoom with us one Saturday evening for a fun socially connecting event and one Sunday morning learning session with a variety of topics and speakers.
