ECRUSY is the Eastern Canadian Region of United Synagogue Youth, encompassing Toronto and the GTA, Hamilton, London, Ottawa, Kingston, Montreal, and more. It is part of Branch Three, along with Tzafon and Haner USY. We serve grades 9-12, and Kadima is for grades 6-8.
What We Do
USY empowers teens to develop:
Friendships and Leadership Skills
A sense of belonging to the Jewish People
A deep engagement and connection to Israel
A commitment to inspired Jewish living
What We Aspire to Do
We envision a world in which Jewish teens are inspired by an authentic and dynamic Judaism to become leaders in their kehillot (Jewish communities inside and outside the walls of a synagogue) and make a positive impact on the world today, and in the future.
