USY Snow Tubing - 02-19-17

Hosted by NHC’s USY, Rockland County USY had a great time snowboarding.  It was so much fun, and we had such nice weather.  We look forward to seeing everyone at our upcoming NHC/MJC/CSI KADIMA & USY Hamentashen Bake-Off (for 5th – 12th Grade).  Thursday, March 9th, 6:30pm at Nanuet Hebrew Center.  


2016 ~ 2017 Update

Dear Families of Nanuet Hebrew Center Youth,

NHC’s Youth Group is a chapter of USY (United Synagogue Youth), which serves kids in grades 9 through 12, with some activities offered for kids in 8th grade.  KADIMA is the pre-USY group which serves kids in grades 6 through 8, with some activities offered for kids in 5th grade.

The mission of our USY chapter is to give our youth a fun after school outlet that simultaneously promotes their Jewish identity.  Together we hope to expand and promote leadership skills in our Kehilla (community).  We hope to sustain a culture of lifelong Jewish learning, nurture religious and spiritual growth as well as inspire meaningful prayer.

Some of the programs scheduled for the 2016-17 year are:  Kickoff Event (“Flipping through the Channels with NHC), Holiday Programs, Sukkah sleepover, Lounge nights, Teen Congregations with Dinner, Snow Tubing, Shul In, Purim Carnival and more.  New this year, Rockland-Wide USY and Kadima Events!

We hope that your children will join us this year at all of these fun and meaningful events.  Our chapter programming fee is the lowest among all other Rockland Chapters, and this year we decided to make it FREE to all returning 2015-16 paid members.

Please click here for our membership application.  Please fill it out and return it to the NHC Office along with your check made payable to “NHC Youth Group”.  If you are a returning 2015-16 youth member, while payment is not needed, the application must be filled out and submitted.
