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.
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).
