ECRUSY, the Eastern Canadian Region of United Synagogue Youth, is USCJ's youth movement that aspires to connect Jewish youth in grades 5-12 through meaningful Jewish experiences and relationships with other Jewish teens and pre-teens in Eastern Canada and throughout North America.
For more than 70 years, ECRUSY has taught Jewish teens the values and skills they need to become exceptional leaders in their religious and secular communities. Through innovative, experiential year-round programming and domestic and international travel opportunities, ECRUSY inspires in teens a deep sense of pride and love for their Jewish identity.
