About 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.

What We Do

By engaging teens in compelling experiences rooted in Conservative Judaism’s approach to learning, spiritual expression and social responsibility on a chapter, regional, and international level, 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
  • A commitment to inspired Jewish living 
  • The ability to make Jewish decisions in the real world

What We Aspire To

We envision a world in which Jewish teens are inspired by an authentic and dynamic Judaism to become leaders in their kehillot (Jewish communities inside and outside the walls of a synagogue) and make a positive impact on the world today, and in the future. 

Our Constitution

The USY constitution, written and amended by elected teen leaders, outlines the governing principles of the organization, standards our teen leaders must follow, official election rules and procedures, and more.
