United Synagogue Youth (USY), Kadima, and Machar

PJTC is proud to host an award-winning chapter of United Synagogue Youth.  USY is open to all Jewish 7th-12th graders, while its counterpart, Kadima, is open to 3rd-6th graders. We also host programs for TK-2nd graders in our Machar group. Whether it be a sleepover in the Sukkah, making a music video, spending the day volunteering in the Pasadena community, going to a trampoline park, celebrating a Jewish holiday in an engaging new way, or playing frisbee until the stars come out, our local chapter has created a haven for any young Jew to come in and feel at home with both old friends & new. We have a thriving & empowered teen leadership board. Members of our youth programs also have the opportunity to attend regional and international USY & Kadima programming–meeting peers from the valley next door and from the other side of the world.  We encourage you to check out our PJTC USY & Kadima website to learn more about our leaders and our programming.  Our Youth Director Emily Fischer is happy to answer any questions and can be reached at
