Kadima (forward in Hebrew) is USY’s, USCJ’s youth movement, program for pre-teens. To many Jewish middle school aged kids, however, it means so much more. Kids in Kadima gain a foundation in the basics of Jewish life and are given the chance to make lots of Jewish friends
Kadima is a lot like USY, but for middle school students. Most USY Chapters also have Kadima chapters, and these chapters have programs similar to those of USY chapters. Also, each year there is a regional convention just for Kadima.
Kadima is a great chance for young Jewish kids to learn about Judaism, but it is also a great place to have a good time and make new friends.
