"USY is a place where I get to see my friends
and have a great time every week!"
-Morey Stone, Past Merrick USY President
Merrick USY, also known as MUSY, is part of the Metropolitan New York (METNY) region of United Synagogue Youth (USY). Programs are designed and facilitated by the USY board and are geared for grades 8th through 12th. Some programs to look forward to this year are: Ice Cream Social, Rosh Hashanah New Year's Celebration, Sushi in the Sukkah, Ice Skating, Chanukah Chinese Auction and the opportunity to participate in divisional, regional and international USY events! MUSY takes place at the Merrick Jewish Centre in the Youth Lounge on Mondays from 7:30pm - 9:00pm.
MUSY won Chapter of Excellence from METNY for 2012-2013
3rd through 7th graders
Programs take place on select Monday nights at the Merrick Jewish Centre from 6:15pm - 7:30pm and are a mix of social, Judaic, and teambuilding activities as well as games, art, and tzedakah (charity) with the backdrop of the temple. It is a place for kids to have fun, enhance their love of Judaism and develop friendships that will last a lifetime!
Each year METNY hosts encampment at the end of the summer at Camp Ramah in the Berkshires for nine days. This is open to all Kadima and USYers and is a great kickoff to youth group! Sign up through the METNY website!
"The nine days you spend at encampment are the best nine days of your year. No question!"
Enrollment in our youth programs is open to both MJC members and non-members.
