USY - United Synagogue Youth

 

EBJC's USY chapter, known as EBUSY, meets about 15 times each year. Our programs are dynamic and ever-changing, including Israel-focused events, religious and holiday programming, Social Action Tikkun Olam (SATO) programming, and social events.  Comprised of teens from several area high schools, we come together for exciting events and to build a supportive community. 
 
Our signature event is our monthly Wednesday event from 7:30-9:00 PM as part of EBJC "Youth Night". Each spring, we host a Saturday Youth Shabbat as well as a Friday night Youth Shabbat. We host a several Sunday afternoon events each year. 
 
Our Youth Advisor, Youth Director, and Spiritual Leader (Rabbi Larry) work closely with our teens to ensure that their programming is safe and successful. Teens must be Jewish, but do not need to belong to EBJC. Teens can pay a flat fee to join our chapter for the year, or can bring $10/program if they are not a chapter member. 
 
EBUSY stands out as a leading chapter in the Hagalil region of USY. In recent years, EBUSY has won awards for its membership/programming initiatives, Israel initiatives, and overall operations. Recent awards have included:
 

 

 

  • Best Membership Initiative
  • Ahavat Tzion (Love for Israel)
  • Chapter of the Year
  • Silver Chapter of Excellence 
  • Best Religious Program
  • Best Engaging Israel Program
Lots to be proud of!

USY (United Synagogue Youth) is the youth organization for Conservative Jewish high school students. Programming occurs at the chapter, zonal, regional, and international levels to offer teens the opportunity to immerse themselves in social, religious, and social-action oriented activities while forming friendships that will last a lifetime. Our synagogue is part of the Hagalil Region of New Jersey. There are chapter events each month as well as monthly regional events.  EBUSY (East Brunswick USY) elects its own Board of Officers to develop programming and run the activities. Leadership skills are developed under the guidance and support of our USY Advisor, Erin Kaplan. Membership is open to members and non-members of EBJC.
