A Beautiful International Evening
Posted on 07/29/2014 @ 11:42 AM
Following an amazing educational program about our fellow BBYO affiliated youth groups in Israel and Argentina, the Kallah body split into our community delegations. We all lined up outside of Katz, one of our main meeting places here at Perlman. With all of the anticipation, we knew exactly what was coming. Delegations from around the world shouted cheers at the top of our lungs. Our pride was met by our friends from all of the world, teens from Slovakia, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Argentina, and of course Canada. Here's the best part, we were gathering to celebrate something even bigger, better, and more world-wide than this. BBYO's International Convention in 2015 will be held February 12th to 16th in Atlanta, Georgia. We will be joined by multiple other youth groups like NFTY, who will be having their convention at the same time and place. Our gathering will make history, being one of the largest gathering of Jews in North America. Hearing about last year's convention and what is to come for this year's was incredibly exciting. Lastly, the international teens at Kallah were inducted into the international order. The ceremony was beautiful and talked about how much stronger we are together, united as one. We now have seven more amazing brothers and sisters, Esther and Alina from Ukraine, Hernie and Malu from Argentina, Alex and Tony from Bulgaria, and Hagai from Israel.
