Youth Groups

 the Kettler & Levy Family Youth Connection

Welcome to The Kettler & Levy Family Youth Connection, where Jewish students of all ages find a home for personal growth, community engagement, and lasting connections. Our youth groups cater to students in grades K-12, providing age-specific programs tailored to their developmental needs.
Explore our three unique youth groups, each designed to meet the distinct needs of students in different grade ranges. Beth Torah’s youth programs are open to members and non-members.


Grades K-5
For our youngest learners in elementary grades K-5, CHALUTZIM is a once-a-month gathering where children engage in a variety of activities, including social gatherings, holiday celebrations, and exciting field trips. It’s the perfect introduction to community, friendship, and the joy of being part of something special.


Grades 6-8
 Middle school students, join us for KADIMA, the middle school program under the auspices of United Synagogue Youth. Meeting twice a month on Tuesdays, KADIMA offers a dynamic space for pre-teens and early teenagers to participate in thrilling events such as movie nights, Olympic competitions, and laser tag. It’s a place where fun and friendship converge to create unforgettable experiences.
Students enrolled in Beth Torah’s J2M B’Nai Mitzvah Program or have graduated from the program the year prior, have an opportunity to join the Kadima group, at no extra cost. 


Grades 9-12
USY, our high school division for grades 9-12, meets weekly on Wednesday nights. Beyond regular meetings, many of our USYers are actively involved in sub-regional and regional activities. From volunteering in the community to enjoying time in our teen-friendly youth lounge, USY becomes more than a youth group – it becomes a second home. Experience the warmth of a supportive community, where friendships flourish and personal growth is celebrated.
