Chaverim, Gesher & AAUSY

What is Chaverim? Chaverim is the youth group specifically for students in K-5th grades. Chaverim usually meets once a month for events.

What is Gesher? Gesher is the youth group specifically for tweens in 6th – 8th grades. It is a great chance for young students to develop close Jewish friends as they embark on their Jewish young adulthood. Events are monthly, often right after CAARS.

What is AAUSY? Agudas Achim United Synagogue Youth is our local chapter of USY, part of the Southwest Region of USY (SWUSY), which is part of an international youth group for Jewish high schoolers! Open to students in grades 8th to 12th, it is a fabulous opportunity for teens to make new friends, get together monthly, develop leadership skills and be Jewish together! All programs are planned by teens for teens under the guidance of our Youth Commission. 

Please note: We want as many of our youth to be able to participate as possible. Scholarships are always available; no child will be turned away due to financial circumstances. Our Youth Commission team is here to help with any needs you may have. Please email Zoe Steiner, Education and Engagement Coordinator, at for any requests and questions.
