Following is the speech delivered at the Omaha Jewish Reunion by the BBYO Grand Aleph Godol, Sam Perlen of Nashville TN, one of Omaha's weekend guests. He was in town from Wednesday evening through Sunday. He had several work sessions with Mother Chapter #1.
BBYO, the world’s leading pluralistic Jewish youth movement and DoSomething.org, the largest not-for-profit for young people and social change, teamed up to launch “Can-Tribute,” a campaign that rallied young people across North America to fight hunger in their local community through a food collection drive.
On Friday night, Dec. 12, over 130 members of South Jersey Region journeyed to the Jewish Federation Annex building in Cherry Hill for the region’s first-ever Winter Retreat, themed “We are Mispacha” (family).
