Welcome to Hagalil

Hagalil, the New Jersey region of the United Synagogue Youth, offers high school students the opportunity to immerse themselves in various Jewish and social activities while forming friendships that will last a lifetime.

Regionally, USYers enjoy and grow religiously through our numerous conventions, week-long summer encampment, dances, special programs, an annual basketball league, and so much more.

In addition, Jewish teens may take advantage of USY’s unforgettable summer programs across North America, Israel, and Europe, as well as the annual International Convention.
