Agudas Achim Congregation is home to three youth groups, all affiliated with the Conservative Movement: USY, Kadima, Machar, and Shoresh.
United Synagogue Youth
United Synagogue Youth (USY) gives high school students (grades 9-12) the opportunity to socialize with Jewish peers, to become involved in the synagogue and the Jewish community, and to experience a Jewish lifestyle. Members of the group, along with their adult advisors, plan our chapter’s programs and participate in regional and national USY dances and conventions. For more information, feel free to contact our USY Advisor Kyra Schuster. (See upcoming USY Events.)
