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 (forward in Hebrew) offers pre-teens grades 5-8 (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:

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