BBYO Shabbat Dinner

We kicked off November with our 6th annual BBYO Shabbat Dinner. It was a great evening - filled with yummy food, good friends and a nice presentation by our chapters about their Stand Up cause. We would like to thank everyone that attended and encourage all families to attend next year. It's a great opportunity to see BBYO in action, while "spending time" with your teens.

As a part of our BBYO family, we hope that you will join us by making new Shabbat memories in your home and community. To help make your Shabbat “extra, extra, extra special” please use this BBYO Shabbat Blessings Card.

Many families are going to be feeling financial strain as a result of the storm's damage, and we want to ensure that BBYO continues to be a source of relief and joy.

As a result, BBYO is establishing a special scholarship fund for teens impacted by the storm. Every penny contributed will allow those who have encountered hardship as a result of the storm damage to attend Regional Conventions, International Convention and Summer Experiences.
