WHAT IS CRUSY?
CRUSY is the Central Region of USY, USCJ’s youth movement. CRUSY includes local chapter youth groups from parts of Indiana, all of Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Western Pennsylvania and West Virginia. CRUSY programs give Jewish teens the opportunity to learn and grow as Jews, have fun and meet other Jewish teenagers.
USYers learn about Judaism and Israel, take part in social action projects, give tzedakah, enjoy social programming and have a great time.There are many chapters in CRUSY. The chapters are based in USCJ congregations throughout the central region.
Chapter activities often include going to various places in their city or area, such as Whirly Ball, Lazer Tag, bowling, baseball games, Kings Island or Cedar Point as well as volunteering in the community and participating in social action oriented programs. Many chapter programs also take place at the synagogue. Check out our Chapters page to find a chapter near you.
During the year, CRUSYites also have the opportunity to get together at conventions. Every two to three months there are conventions when people from all around CRUSY spend a Shabbat weekend together.
Going to a regional convention is a GREAT way to meet people from all over our great region!
