Setzer Youth Education

Get your teen involved in life here at the Center!

USY, Kadima, Chalutzim, Scouts, JTLI and Siyyum are all programs offered here.

USY is the Conservative movement’s award winning youth engagement program. Here you’ll find teens empowered to own their Jewish journey through services, summer programs and of course local chapter events.

Kadima is the training ground for USY. Middle school age children have the opportunity to share social Jewish connections through weekly programs and shabbat conventions.

Chalutzim is Center’s own group for 4th and 5th graders where they build and maintain strong social connections with Jewish peers.

Scouts has a century of tradition at the Jacksonville Jewish Center. It is our pleasure to bring Jewish learning to the scout world by providing a shomer shabbat experience as the children earn badges through the BSA program.

JTLI is the focused learning opportunity for teens (grades 8 through 11) to engage in conversations with a Jewish lens. Teens learn about the Jewish approaches to relationships, social responsibility to the community at large and more by gathering several times a month to go deep in their learning.

Siyyum is where high school seniors learn with Rabbi Lubliner strengthening their commitment to the Jewish community. The program includes joining AIPAC in March and making a difference with a local organization outside of the Jewish community.
