The Greatest Kinnus Weekend

It is with great excitement and anticipation that the Beth Am Youth Department announces that our congregation has been selected to host the 2019 Far West Regional United Synagogue Youth “USY” Specialty Kinnus: “The Greatest Kinnus.” We look forward to welcoming Far West Region USYers in 9th-12th Grades to Beth Am over the weekend of February 15th-17th for what is sure to be an outstanding weekend showcasing our Youth Program, community and beautiful new building.

In preparation for hosting this Kinnus, we are asking for your help! Please see details below.

We need your help and hospitality. Are you able to accomodate USYers at your home? This is a great honor and opportunity to expose your family to the magic of USY.  If you have space in your home for these teens coming from all over Southern California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico and Utah, please consider opening your home. We are looking to our wonderful community to house these USYers for the weekend.  We are also hoping that if you have a Sr. USYer, they will join us for the weekend.
