It's not too late to donate!

It has been a fantastic year for BBYO-Wisconsin Region! We’ve had meaningful Judaic programs, teens running for elected leadership positions, and innovative social justice programs.

These important programs are only possible thanks to the support of members of our Milwaukee Jewish community – leaders like you. BBYO is in the final leg of our 2011-2012 Annual Campaign but its not too late to donate this year.

Our Milwaukee Jewish community should be very proud of our local BBYO program. Every charitable investment in BBYO counts! One hundred percent of your tax deductible donation to BBYO in Wisconsin will stay in Milwaukee to benefit our community’s teens. Please give by June 30 to help us reach our goal this fiscal year.

Thank you in advance for your support. Click here to donate online.

Friends of Rosie Frydman Endowment Fund

The Frydman Family is happy to announce that they have set-up the Friends of Rosie Frydman endowment fund in honor of their Sister/Aunt that passed away in October, Rosemarie "Rosie" Frydman. Rosie was a life long involved member of Wisconsin Region and is deeply missed.

This endowment fund was created to be used for programming purposes. If you would like to donate to the Friends of Rosie Frydman endowment fund, you can do so by contacting the Milwaukee Jewish Community Foundation at 414-390-5737.

BBYO's new 2012 - 2013 International Teen Presidents Sarah Minion and Logan Miller represented some of the Jewish community’s top leaders this month at the Jewish American Heritage Month reception at the White House.

“We were so honored to be considered not just as leaders of tomorrow’s Jewish community, but leaders of today,” said Logan Miller, Grand Aleph Godol. “Having the opportunity to speak to members of Congress and tell them about what BBYO was accomplishing was inspiring for us as Sarah and I kick off our year of work together.”
