What and where is Metny Usy?
The Metropolitan New York Region of USY (METNY) serves Jewish teens from Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Long Island, Westchester, Rockland, Putnam, Orange Counties and Greenwich, Stamford, and Norwalk, CT.
METNY USY offers middle and high school students the opportunity to engage in various Jewish and social activities while forming friendships that last a lifetime. Through a variety of programs throughout the year, METNY USY strives to inspire meaningful encounters with Judaism and the Jewish people. We believe that engagement, study, and action lead to personal fulfillment and growth. METNY USY aims to give teens opportunities to make significant contributions to their synagogues, communities, society, and the Jewish people.
Thanks to the thriving Jewish community in the Metropolitan Area, METNY is divided into geographical divisions (Sub-Regions) to better serve each communities needs. The three divisions that comprise METNY are Long Island (Ruach Division), Queens, Brooklyn, and Manhattan (Sababa Division), and the Bronx, Westchester, Rockland, Orange, and Putnam county, and Greenwich, Stamford, and Norwalk, CT (Emek Division).
Our teens enjoy numerous conventions, a week-long summer encampment, dances, and special programs. In METNY USY there are many leadership opportunities that teens can take advantage of such as board positions, co- chairing events, and leading programs throughout the community. In addition, our teens participate in unforgettable summer programs across North America, Israel, and Europe, as well as the annual International Convention.
