USY Mission Statement
USY empowers Jewish youth to develop friendships, leadership skills, a sense of belonging to the Jewish People, a deep engagement with and love for Israel, and a commitment to inspired Jewish living through meaningful and fun experiences based on the ideology of Conservative Judaism.
TBSEV USY Mission Statement
From leadership training to social programming, social action, repairing the world, and creating a welcome community to learn and grow. Our USY and Kadima is about family, joining together, supporting each other and learning to lead and participate in the Jewish community. The general aim of the United Synagogue Youth program (which includes Kadima) is to bring about a meaningful and fully reciprocal encounter of Judaism. Explore the Jewish way of living, through study, action and fellowship, leading to personal fulfillment and growth while meeting his/her spiritual and social needs, as well to, make a significant contribution to his/her synagogue, community, society and the Jewish people. Our TBSEV Youth have become model leaders and participants in our temple community, our local community as well as our regional USY community. We regularly host events for our chapter and participate in events with other Arizona chapters. We are always open to meeting new people and finding new ways to connect to our community and our Judaism. Check out our Facebook page @TBSEVYouth and see all the fun we are having!
