H2I Youth Group (USY/Kadima)

H2I Youth Group is the award-winning youth program of Hillcrest Jewish Center, Hollis Hills Bayside Jewish Center, and Israel Center of Conservative Judaism. Through this collaboration, we are able to bring together youth from all over the Northeast Queens Jewish Community, allowing for a vibrant Judaic environment in which our youth can socialize and learn.

Our weekly Sunday night programs provide the opportunity for our members to have a meaningful social experience with their peers, through activities that range from athletic to artistic and from competing against friends to engaging in social justice. Our program includes a Swim & Gym program each Thursday night for Grades 2-8, as well as special trips and events throughout the year for all groups. 

We are affiliated with the United Synagogue Youth, the youth movement of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism. As a result, our high school and middle school participants also take part in divisional, regional, and international USY and Kadima events, in which they have the opportunity to meet peers across the city, state, and country to make lifelong friendships and have positive Jewish experiences together.
