Youth Groups

Kol Emeth offers three youth groups providing wonderful opportunities for socializing, community service, and Jewish fun. Kadima and Junior Kadima are youth programs for
4th-8th graders. PAUSY is the Palo Alto Chapter of the United Synagogue Youth organization for high school students, complete with monthly weekend activities and 5 awesome regional conventions a year. Synagogue membership is not required to get your children involved in these programs!

Our Vision: The Jewish youth of our community will feel connected to and engaged with Judaism, Israel, and the Jewish People.

Our Mission: Kol Emeth Youth Programs aim to foster lifelong Jewish identity, Jewish literacy, and Jewish community through various  modalities including social events, educational opportunities, tikkun olam projects and religious expression.

(In other words, as our USY Board puts it, our goal is to have “righteous fun!”)
