USY

United Synagogue Youth (USY) is Conservative Judaism's high school youth group, and we have a chapter at Sinai, SJCUSY.

Congregation Sinai USY (SJCUSY) is a part of New Frontier which is the Northern California (and Reno, Nevada) region of USY and Kadima. It is1 of the 17 different regions in USY-the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism (USCJ) youth movement. 
Over the course of the year SJCUSY has many events that range from lounge nights to lock in to Shabbatons. These events are designed to build life-long relationships, foster Jewish identity, and provide a safe environment. SJCUSY also participates in New Frontier’s regional Weekends throughout the year.
All teens (8th-12TH graders) are welcome to participate at our USY events; and pre-teens (6th-8th graders) are welcome to participate in our Kadima events. Please contact [email protected] for more information.
 WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU AT OUR NEXT EVENT!

It costs $36 to join, but subsidies are available. If you want to know more, email Terah Yevilov at [email protected].

USY on Wheels Summer 2015 in San Jose

Congregation Sinai participated in the Home Hospitality program to enable Wheelniks to see and experience life in Jewish communities other than their own. Through our participation, Jewish teenagers on a six week trip from East to West had the opportunity to meet teens in our San Jose community in a special way. Thank you to all the Sinai families who opened their homes to host the teens.
