CHUSY Fest

CHUSY is the Chicago region of United Synagogue Youth (USY), the youth group of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism. CHUSY covers Chicago as well as Madison, Milwaukee, and Northwest Indiana. CHUSY programs give Jewish teens a chance to learn and grow as a Jew and most of all to have fun with other Jews. Teens learn about Judaism and Israel, do social action projects, give tzedakah, and enjoy other social programming like bowling or just hanging out.
