About International Convention

Each year, hundreds of AZA & BBG leaders, alumni, advisors, professional staff and top Jewish philanthropists from around the world convene on President’s Day weekend in February as the largest pluralistic annual gathering of Jewish teens working to strengthen the Jewish future. At IC, Alephs and BBGs have the unique opportunity to take part in exemplary BBYO programming such as hearing from prominent speakers, participating in large-scale service learning opportunities and celebrating an inspiring Shabbat like most have never experienced before. In addition to showcasing spirit and community pride, IC participants take part in the democratic process of furthering the organization’s business agenda and electing AZA & BBG’s next international teen leadership. Opportunities to experience IC’s host city, engage with the host community and build lifelong global friendships are constants of every IC.
