As part of TLC, our teens in 8th-12th grade can participate in USY, the international youth movement of Conservative congregations.

We are actively involved in our USY Divison, Emek, and Region, MENTY, and are proud to send many teens on USY Summer Experience each year with the support of the Christopher B. Gordon Memorial Fund. We are also very supportive of METNY Encampment for rising 6th-12th graders.

International USY has announced introduced new virtual programs: #MyUSYfiFall (which will include METNY events) and USY’s 70th International Convention: IC EVERYWHERE.

International USY cannot wait to get started with all kinds of exciting programming for Jewish pre-teens and teens in 5-12th grade through #MyUSYfiFall. Registration is opening September 8th, and this page will be updated with a schedule of events for you to look forward to – so keep an eye out!

#MyUSYfiFall will include METNY events.

What is Emek?

Kadima and USY are the international youth group of Conservative Judaism. At Bet Torah, our division is Emek, which includes Putnam, Orange, Westchester, and Rockland County, as well as some of Connecticut. Our region is called METNY, which includes all of Emek, as well as the boroughs of New York City and Long Island.

What is METNY?

The Metropolitan New York Region (METNY) of USY gives Jewish teens in our area the opportunity to engage in various Jewish and social activities while forming friendships that last a lifetime. METNY strives to inspire meaningful encounters with Judaism and the Jewish people.

METNY USY offers middle and high school students the opportunity to engage in various Jewish and social activities while forming friendships that last a lifetime. Through a variety of programs throughout the year, METNY USY strives to inspire meaningful encounters with Judaism and the Jewish people. We believe that engagement, study, and action lead to personal fulfillment and growth. METNY USY aims to give teens opportunities to make significant contributions to their synagogues, communities, society, and the Jewish people.

Our teens enjoy numerous conventions, a week-long summer encampment, dances, and special programs. In METNY USY there are many leadership opportunities that teens can take advantage of such as board positions, co-chairing events, and leading programs throughout the community.

In addition, our teens participate in unforgettable summer programs across North America, Israel, and Europe, as well as the annual International Convention.
