The USY University 'class of 2019'
Congregation Ohev Shalom eighth-grade Shabbaton features "USY University," Jan. 23-25, where the theme was making the transition from middle school to high school with a Jewish lens. Discussions included healthy ways to cope with stress, "ask the experts" question and answers with the USY board about high school, anti-Semitism.
On Shabbat afternoon participants learned about the different positions in USY through fun and interactive games and activities. The COS USY board and COS youth staff participated with the eighth-graders.
USY is the high school youth group of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism and is open to all Jewish teens regardless of synagogue membership. Eighth-graders are welcome to attend local USY events.
