The backbone of HaNer is our chapters. Our 21+ synagogue-based HaNer chapters run fantastic programs for their Kadimaniks, Junior, and Senior USYers. Many of our chapters have also been awarded the prestigious title of International Chapter of the Year.

Chapter events vary from year to year, but some popular events include: Cosmic bowling, Teen Shabbat, Apple picking, Movie nights, Sukkah hops, Pizza in the Hut, Ice skating, Nursing home visits, Snow tubing, Family Shabbat dinners, Regressive meals, Super Bowl parties, Game nights, Sporting events, Lock-ins, and much, much more.

To become a USY member, please contact your local chapter or Joyce Juda, NERUSY Director, at 617-964-8210 / juda@uscj.org

Inter-Chapter Events

Throughout the year, several chapters may get together to run a variety of events. Inter-chapter events are run by the chapters, not the region.
