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.
Recently in my mother’s bedroom, I discovered a Passover guide published by the B’nai B’rith Youth Organization in Washington, D.C., that likely dates to the 1950s. Looking through this guide stimulated memories of celebrating Passover as a child at home with my family.
