BBYO Overseas Recognition Act
An exciting motion has just passed! In an effort to recognize BBYO as an important cornerstone of creating a stronger, more unified Jewish people, the motion is based on the organizational partnership developed and formalized by the JDC and BBYO, and celebrates the three existing BBYO communities that will participate in the JDC/BBYO fellowship program (Israel, Izmir, Turkey and Serbia). The motion also officially recognizes Argentina into the BBYO family as an official global affiliate as a product of the JDC/BBYO partnership.
To read the entire motion, please read below:
Maker: 66th International Board of the B’nai B’rith Girls

Whereas, BBYO is the leading global Jewish pluralistic youth movement; and
Whereas, BBYO has affiliates and membership communities around the world; and
Whereas, relationships amidst leaders, initiative collaboration and meaningful communication are increasingly frequent, productive, unifying, and effective; and
Whereas, the presence of BBYO teens from beyond the United States and Canada are increasingly active participants at BBYO international programs and summer experiences; and
Whereas, the world is increasingly ‘smaller’, the current membership is a more global-centric generation than ever before, and more Jewish communities abroad are seeking affiliation with BBYO; and
Whereas, there is a long standing history of decades of depth-oriented relationships, shared experiences, international atmosphere at summer programs; and
Whereas, the international aspect of BBYO has always been and remains to be one of the most unique attributes of our organization; and
Whereas, the JDC is a powerful force for maintaining and building Jewish communities around the world; and
Whereas, our modern day relationship with the Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) has progressed since 2006 and BBYO has become a central teen agency for the JDC;
Be it hereby proclaimed that: based on the organizational partnership developed and formalized by the JDC and BBYO, we celebrate the three existing BBYO communities that will participate in the JDC/BBYO fellowship program (Israel, Izmir, Turkey and Serbia); and
Be it further recommended that: We proudly welcome Argentina into the BBYO family as an official global affiliate country as a product of the JDC/BBYO partnership; and
Be it further recommended that: the Global Ambassadors Network being launched by the 86th and 66th International Boards create ambassadors to all BBYO communities, creating warm and substantial relationships across global BBYO.
