Co-Chaired by Eighth Grade CRUSY Programmers David Bromberg and Ellie Shafron, this is the convention for middle school students. It is the first taste of USY for students in sixth through eighth grades. It is also where the regional board and chapter presidents meet. They help teach middle school students about the wonders of CRUSY. Each year, our region, CRUSY (Central Region United Synagogue Youth) holds an annual weekend convention, Kadima Kinnus (gathering) exclusively for sixth through eighth graders.
Our Kadima’niks will spend an enriching weekend in a fun and enjoyable atmosphere with other pre-teens from around our CRUSY region. In addition to our middle school students, USY Chapter Presidents and the CRUSY Regional Board will join us to assist with leading programming and to share their enthusiasm. The weekend will include an enjoyable Shabbat experience with singing, learning and socializing. It is a time to make new Jewish friends in a safe, friendly and well supervised environment. On Saturday after Shabbat, we will enjoy a fun social program.
Join in on the fun if you are in 6-8th grade! December 9-11, 2016 at Tifereth Israel in Columbus, Ohio. For more information, contact Allison Gutman at firstname.lastname@example.org or 248.357.5544.
