BGUSY (pronounced Bah- Goo- See) is short for Ben Gurion United Synagogue Youth. We are a Jewish teen youth group based at Beth El Congregation in the South Hills, affiliated with the Conservative movement. BGUSY is a Central Region USY chapter, and provides opportunities for Pittsburgh’s Jewish teens to connect with each other, as well as with other teens in the region’s many participating states. Says nelson, it’s not just one factor it’s a combination. BGUSY provides a balance of Jewish events and activities and more secular activities for Jewish teens. It offers a comfortable and invigorating environment for teens to discover and/or strengthen their Jewish Identity.
