Who We Are

ECRUSY is the Eastern Canadian Region of United Synagogue Youth, encompassing Toronto and the GTA, Hamilton, London, Ottawa, Kingston, Montreal, and more. USY serves grades 9-12, Gesher is for grades 5-8, and Chaverim is for grades 3-5.



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.
