Engaging Young Teens in Jewish Living

What is Kadima?

Kadima is Youth Programming for all Beth Shalom 6th-8th graders. Programs are led by KCUSYers (9th-12th graders) who plan fun social programs that center around engaging in Jewish life, building Jewish community, and learning about KCUSY values.

Every month there are KCUSY led Kadima programs and EMTZA led Kadima Programs. EMTZA is the Midwest region of USY and includes local chapters from Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Iowa, Colorado, Missouri, Kansas, and Southeast Illinois. The region plans programming for Kadima which is like KCUSY led Kadima programs with the addition of Kadimaniks from across the region.

If you need information about Kadima, please do not hesitate to email our Director of Youth & Familly Programming HERE
