This week, more than 3,000 Jewish teens from around the country and across the globe will join together in Atlanta for three days of service, learning and celebration as part of BBYO and NFTY’s International Conventions.
MJDS instills in its students a love of Judaism and prepares them to become leaders who are engaged in the community. BBYO provides experiences that strengthen Jewish identity and build leadership skills. Together, they make a big impact on the future of the Jewish community.
Colin Silverman, 18, was recently elected Grand Aleph Godol (the highest male position) of BBYO, a 90-year-old Jewish youth movement engaging teens in leadership opportunities and other Jewish experiences.
The BBYO International Conventiont has grown to be a setting for individuals across the Jewish community to learn, lead and work together toward ensuring a strong Jewish future, spearheaded by the next generation.
I am part of a truly amazing and enriching experience at the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta. I serve on the Teen JAM leadership committee, a task force for J-Serve, the International Day of Jewish Community Service for teens, which is Sunday, April 19, from 1 to 6:30 p.m.
