Wendy Armon attends B’nai B’rith Perlman Camp to conduct a Sensitivity Training on being respectful of kids from interfaith homes with Rabbi Robyn Frisch for the B’nai Brith Youth Organization (BBYO) Kallah program.
After a long plane ride to Baltimore, Maryland, I arrived at the BWI airport and was greeted by staff members of the BBYO program that I was attending, Impact:DC. This program’s goal was to teach Jewish youth from around the world about issues in the Washington, DC community and ways to combat them.
Today, BBYO is a welcoming home to the more than 40,000 Jewish teens who take part in programming around the world. Participants find a safe place where they can be themselves, learn, lead, serve and have fun with friends who become brothers and sisters.
Leading up to BBYO International Convention (IC) 2015, Jewish teens around the world are invited to share their innovative ideas for how to engage more Jewish teens in Jewish life by submitting a video application.
The JPRO Network will honor JDC’s Alan Gill and a dedicated group of young professionals at its annual Awards Ceremony and Program, as part of the General Assembly of The Jewish Federation of North America.
