Aberdeen USY (AUSY), our youth group for high school students, meets twice a month on Sunday evenings. AUSY is a self-governing group that elects an executive board every spring. The AUSY Board and USY advisor, Mara Herling, work together to plan and develop social, educational, recreational, and religious programs for its members.

AUSY strives to make the world a better place by helping out in the synagogue, undertaking social action initiatives, and organizing fundraisers for the International USY charity, Tikun Olam.  AUSY members actively participate in Hagalil USY regional events including dances, kinnusim (Shabbat weekend conventions), and Hagalil USY Encampment. Members also attend international USY programs such as USY International Convention, USY on Wheels, and USY Israel Pilgrimage. AUSY has been recognized by the Hagalil region for increased membership and per capita contribution to Tikun Olam, and has received regional awards including “Most Improved Chapter”, and “Chapter of Excellence”. 

The Temple Beth Ahm Youth Commission oversees the planning and execution of USY programming. For further information about youth activities, contact Debra Kurzman, Temple Beth Ahm Youth Commission Chair, at
