Saturday night served as a very important night here at AZA BBG IC 2013. It was not only the close of an incredible Shabbat, but it was also when Logan Miller, the Grand Aleph Godol, and Sarah Minion, the International N'siah, addressed the entire IC body. They told us about all of the amazing endeavors they’d championed over the past seven months.
The night started out with various awards that were given to teens in return for their hard work and dedication thus far in BBYO. Outstanding advisors were recognized for their hard work as well.
An incredible moment was achieved when ALL of the International Delegates were inducted into BBYO. It was so overwhelming to see their peers cheering them on in the crowd.
Once it was time for Sarah and Logan's State of the Order, both of their families spoke in honor of this milestone.
Over the past months, Logan and Sarah focused on international goals like globalization, commitment to Israel, program excellence and growing BBYO Connect. Logan emphasized that more chapters were created this year than any other year. They also added that they were hoping to start a summer program in the UK/Ireland. Sarah stated, "This is the moment our ancestors were waiting for."
At the end of the address, Logan and Sarah made sure we knew what the next step is: realizing where traditions come from and what we can do to create a brighter future for AZA and BBG!
