B’nai Tikvah supports three different youth groups. A pre-Kadima group for third, fourth and fifth graders; Kadima for sixth through eighth grades and USY (United Synagogue Youth) for ninth through twelfth grade. Each group has a set calendar of local chapter events while Kadima and USY also have regional events (through the Hagalil Region of United Synagogue) throughout the northern half of the state. Additionally, one week of sleep-away camp (aka Encampment) is offered each summer (usually beginning the third sunday of August) with bus transportation from an area synagogue included in the cost.
These youth groups strengthen and energize our youth’s connections to Judaism, the Jewish community and Jewish values, through participation in fun and varied activities, including lock-ins, movie nights, rock-a-thons, dances, pool parties and more.
