From the Regional Staff:

The month of November is filled with many opportunities for BBYO teens to come together, honor and embrace their Jewish heritage and learn about Israel.

We just participated in AZA and BBG Global Shabbat, joining thousands of Jewish teens in grades 6-12 in communities spanning 12 countries. This was a uniquely special program for the Jewish community’s youngest leaders to celebrate our most holy of holidays.

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 International 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.

At a BBYO Summer Experience, you will have the opportunity to do even more. You can learn how to help your Chapter, Council, Region and our International Order on leadership programs; visit countries in every corner of the world; learn in the Jewish homeland; and serve, advocate and Stand UP for what you believe in. And, no matter which program you choose, you’ll be having fun with Jewish teens from around the world.

The Early Early Bird Discount of $150 off the cost of all BBYO Summer Experiences is available until November 26. There are a limited number of discounts available, so don’t miss out.

Register early to secure your spot and save!
