What is usy?

USY is USCJ’s youth movement for Conservative Jewish teens across North America. For more than 60 years, USY has taught young Jews the values and skills they need to become exceptional leaders in their religious and secular communities. 

Shearith Israel is affiliated with the southeastern region (HaNegev) of United Synagogue Youth, allowing our USY-ers to join in activities with other teenagers from the Southeast.

Why USY?

USY provides meaningful, immersive Jewish experiences, helping teens integrate Jewish rituals and values into their everyday lives. USY participants enjoy opportunities for leadership, meeting teens from different schools, and resume building for college applications.  The Shearith Israel chapter socializes with other local Atlanta chapters to help build Jewish friendships across the city.
