Youth Programs

The USY affiliated youth group BHUSY at Beth Hillel Bnai Emunah, believes that providing an opportunity for our children to participate in a vibrant synagogue Youth Department plays an important role in Jewish continuity. We strive for our youth to demonstrate and experience the Jewish way of living through study, action, and fellowship in an experiential Jewish environment. All of our programs offer a range of cultural, social, educational, religious, Israel, and social action oriented aspects geared towards the needs and interests of the Jewish youth of different age groups.

Our commitment to our children is evidenced by the continued support of youth activities supervised by our professional staff. Sam Bolen, our Annette W & Mel F Seidenberg Youth Advisor is committed to making BHBE’s program exceptional! Sam is an experienced Youth Advisor and has many years of experience working with children of all ages.

Beth Hillel USY (BHUSY) is part of the International Jewish Youth organization sponsored by the Department of Youth Activities of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism. In addition to chapter programming, BHBE children have the opportunity to participate in regional and international USY programs. BHUSY is one of many chapters in CHUSY (the Chicago-area USY) region. 

The BHBE Youth Department is ready to meet your needs and we would love to have you as part of our program. If you have any questions about any of our great programs or just want to sign up and join in the fun, call Sam at 914-886-5000 or email
