Here at Beth Israel there are three youth groups:

USY stands for United Synagogue Youth, and it is the youth group associated with the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism. USY is an organization for Jewish teens to have fun, strengthen your connection with Judaism, and make lifelong friendships.  It is divided into three levels: the chapter, the region and international USY. Our chapter is Vancouver Nitzachon and is open to all Jewish teens, grades 9-12. Our region, the Pinwheel region, is composed of chapters from all  across the Pacific Northwest. The third level is the international level, made up of all the regions across North America.  We hope that you join us and be part of something great!


Kadima and Atid
For the younger ones, Beth Israel offers two very exciting youth groups: Atid and Kadima.  Atid is for grades 4-5.  Kadima is for grades 6-8.  Each group has one event per month and the Kadimanics have the opportunity to attend a regional Shabbaton!!
