Kadima (youth group)

Kadima (Hebrew: קדימה, literally "forward") is a youth group affiliated with the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism (USCJ), specifically aimed at Jewish preteens living in North America in Grades 6-8. Every synagogue in North America is entitled to a chapter of Kadima.
Kadima serves as a "feeder" into United Synagogue Youth, the other USCJ youth group, aimed at Jewish high-school aged youth.
