Constitution

SWUSY CONSTITUTION

Preamble

We, the representatives of United Synagogue Youth, a Zionist organization affiliated with the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism, cognizant of the historical and cultural background of our people, and recognizing that youth must perpetuate Judaism in order that the Jewish people make their contribution to the betterment of mankind, do hereby ordain and establish this as the Constitution and By-laws of the Southwest Region of the United Synagogue Youth of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism in order to further these principles.

Section I: The Aim

The aim of the Southwest Region USY is to offer opportunities to Jewish youth to continue and strengthen their identification with Judaism, with Israel, and with the Synagogue as the central agency of Jewish life in America, and to give Jewish youth an awareness of the essential harmony between the traditions and ideals of Judaism and American democracy. In consonance with this aim, the Southwest Region USY seeks to develop a program based on these interests, needs, and the personality development of the teenager.

Section II: The Objectives

A. Study
Knowledge of Jewish heritage and ideals is essential to creative Jewish living. Therefore, USY dedicates itself to the ideals of Jewish learning by:

1. Encouraging its members to attend existing institutions of learning.
2. Encouraging its chapters to establish programs for group study.
3. Encouraging its members to read books of Jewish interest and to undertake a program of individual study.
4. Encouraging its members to further their interest in the Jewish arts.

B. The Observance of Sabbath and Holidays
The observance of the Sabbath and the Holidays is of basic importance. Therefore, USY dedicates itself to strengthening the Sabbath and Holidays by:

1. Encouraging its members to attend services on Holidays and the Sabbath.
2. Encouraging its members to join with their families in the Sabbath and the Holiday meals and rituals.
3. Encouraging its chapters to sponsor programs in the spirit of the Sabbath and the Holidays.

C. Prayer
Prayer is one of the three pillars of Jewish life — Torah (Study), Avodah (Prayer) and Gemilot Hasadim (Good Deeds). We believe that the Jewish teenager should experience the feelings of kinship and power arising out of public worship and the feeling of the nearness of God arising out of private devotion.
D. Kashrut
The observance of the Dietary Laws has innovated Jewish values and facilitated Jewish survival. Therefore, USY

1. Requires that its chapters observe the dietary laws at all their functions.
2. Urges its members to observe Kashrut in their homes and in their lives.

E. The Synagogue
The Synagogue has been the center of Jewish life. Therefore, USY dedicates itself to strengthening the Synagogue by intensifying the participation of USY members in the Synagogue program through:

1. Establishing a teenage Congregation.
2. Having members of the teenage groups, whenever and wherever possible, participate in the conduct of the services.
3. Having members of USY regard themselves as youth members of the Adult Congregation and, as such, participate in the Congregational functions and affairs.

F. The Jewish Community
No Jewish youth organization is sufficient unto itself. It must share concern for and activity on behalf of all Israel. To this end, USY:

1. Cooperates with other Jewish groups to common purposes.
2. Participates in the affairs of the local Jewish community.
3. Accepts its share of the responsibility for Jewish rehabilitation and philanthropy wherever it is needed.
4. Dedicates itself to strengthening the ties between Israeli and American Jewry.

G. The Brotherhood of Man
The welfare of humanity is the concern of Jews. Therefore, USY cooperates on the local, national, and world levels with those forces:

1. Working for Democracy.
2. Working for worldwide understanding.
3. Working for human welfare.

Jewish youth groups of any Conservative synagogue affiliated with the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism or otherwise granted special permission by the Central Office, within the borders of the Southwest Region, which are in agreement with the Central and Regional Constitutions, are eligible to become member chapters in the Southwest Region USY, provided that:

Any group that has been suspended may be reinstated before expiration of the suspension time by the same procedure followed in the suspension of a group.
