United Synagogue Youth inspires Jewish youth to explore, celebrate and practice ethical values, Jewish Living, Zionism and community responsibility based on the ideology of the Conservative Movement! For 60 years, USY has been involving and educating Jewish teens across North America, teaching them about life, friendship, religion and leadership while changing their lives forever.

CBI’s United Synagogue Youth (USY) is a peer led youth group for Congregation B’nai Israel’s ninth through twelfth graders with the goal of helping teens establish a strong and positive Jewish identity. At the Millburn USY Chapter level, USY will provide fun and exciting social and educational events both at the synagogue and within the community. There are parties, social events and special programs and trips. For some events, we will be joined by area chapters to maximize the fun! For those teens that are interested, there are regional monthly dances, several weekend conventions and an end of the summer week-long encampment program.

Millburn USYers meet twice a month as a chapter for an event that is centered on social actions, Israel, Judaism, raising money for Tikun Olam (USY’s tzedakah fund), or simply to socialize with other Jewish teens. The Millburn USY chapter has won a number of regional awards including Most Improved Chapter, Chapter of Excellence and several Programming Awards.

 Who can join? When does Millburn USY meet?

If you are a high school student (grades 9-12) and are interested in meeting and socializing with other Jewish teens, become part of Millburn USY! Most of our programs take place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at Congregation B’nai Israel from 7:30-9:00 p.m.  We do sponsor a few programs at off-site locations.
