Kids playing with dreidelsNorthern Hills Synagogue provides our youth with opportunities to socialize, makes new friends, and take part in a wide variety of social, cultural, and religious activities. Tammy Meyer is Youth Director.

The four youth groups are:

Chaverim (Kindergarten - 2nd Grade)

We start our youngest members off with fun and educational programming, giving them the opportunity to make new friends.

Kitanim (3rd - 5th Grade)

Kitanim is the next stage, and focuses largely on social development, giving children an opportunity to form Jewish friendships in relaxed, fun environments.  It builds towards interest and active involvement in Kadima and USY.

Kadima (6th - 8th Grade)

In Kadima, middle school students have the opportunity to develop their leadership skills as they prepare for their lives as Jewish teenagers. They decide on, help organize, and participate in all kinds of exciting programs.  Our chapter engages in a wide variety of social, educational, and religious events, as well as programs promoting social action. Our Kadima chapter is part of the North American USCJ (United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism) organization.  In addition to local activities, chapter members attend regional conventions, giving participants the opportunity to spend Shabbat with dozens of teens their age from other cities in our region.

NCUSY members plan and run their own exciting and meaningful local programs, including social events and Social Action/Tikkun Olam (SA/TO) activities. They also have the opportunity to participate in citywide, regional and even international programs, building strong Jewish bonds that can stay with them as they begin their adult lives.  NCUSY is part of the North American USY organization, sponsored by USCJ.

College Programs

Northern Hills Synagogue organizes two events each year when colleges are on break so that our college-age students can get together with their old synagogue friends.
