Youth & Teens
There are a number of ways for the teens in our community to get involved! Some are social, some are educational, and some are both! For information on our educational opportunities for teens, including our Madrichim Team and Gesher Program, click here
KADIMA programming is for 6th - 8th graders. Join your friends at PSJC and bring your friends from the neighborhood for ice cream sundaes, holiday parties, movie nights, and more.
USY programming is for 9th -12th graders. Many of the programs for USY Teens at PSJC and with our partners in the neighborhood are open to 8th graders as well, like our Teen Shabbat dinners.
METNY is the name of the region we are in - Metro NY. As a synagogue affiliated with the Conservative Movement, we are a part of a collective of synagogues throughout the NY Metro area, both for adult and teen programming. In order to attend regional events, teens must be paid members of USY ($36 dues) and we can sign you up through the office.
Our youth programming is open to both members and non-members of the PSJC community, so invite your friends!
