Park Synagogue Youth Group

Park Synagogue Youth Groups


Park Synagogue's youth programs offer a wide variety of social, cultural, and recreational activities for Jewish children in grades 3-12. Our objective is to provide young people with an opportunity to meet for enjoyable activities while learning more about our Jewish heritage.


Programs are designed to develop a social consciousness through participation in social action projects within the community. We believe that strong youth programming is an important supplement to formal Jewish education and helps to establish lifelong Jewish involvement.


Our Youth program is divided into three autonomous groups: 

Jr. Kadima (grades 3-5), Kadima (grades 6-8), and United Synagogue Youth, commonly referred to as USY, serves grades 9-12.


Each of our youth groups holds an activity each month. Our Kadima and USY chapters are nationally affiliated, making it possible for our young people to attend various regional and national functions. Each group holds social or social action activities that help our Religious School and Day School students integrate with each other, and encourage them to create lasting bonds with our congregation. This year our USY will serve as counselors for our younger groups.

We have so many fun events scheduled for this year, there is something for everyone! Events this year include a trip to Zip City, ice skating, Hamantaschen baking and events with the Jr. Kadima and Kadima age kids from B’nai Jeshurun. We are looking forward to another fun year!
