Record number of Jewish teens gather for BBYO International Convention

Record number of Jewish teens gather for BBYO International Convention

I have just returned to LA from a brief visit to Baltimore (think 60 degree difference in ambient temperature) after participating in the national Jewish Teen Summit, a 24-hour convening of practitioners, lay leaders, funders and teens to explore how we can think differently about Jewish teen education and engagement.

Baltimore, Maryland, was clearly the place to be these past few days. For not only did 2400 Jewish teens convene for BBYO’s annual International Convention (IC), but hundreds of their friends, funders and partners, came together for the Summit on Jewish Teens, held to coincide with the IC program.

BBYO kicked off their annual International Convention at the Baltimore Hilton with over 2,400 teenagers from 700 communities worldwide in attendance (we’re told a 182% increase from 2012) as well as 2,000 adults, including philanthropists, alumni, thought leaders and educators, providing plenty of supervision and guidance.

Several St. Louis area participants say that one of the greatest benefits of BBYO is the chance to meet Jewish high school students from all over the world. That will happen again this year when the 92nd BBYO International Convention (IC) takes place over President’s Day weekend, Feb. 11-15, in Baltimore.
