BBYO Celebrates Our Advisors!
Mazel Tov to the 2014 David Bittker Advisor of the Year Award Recipients!
Mazel Tov to Kevin Friduss,Shabak AZA advisor for the Great Midwest Region and Stephanie Berlin Loovis, Sally Blum BBG advisor for Northern Texas Oklahoma Region who were recently awarded the International BBYO David Bittker AZA & BBG Advisor of the Year awards, for their work with their AZA and BBG chapters. Kevin and Stephanie have each played an integral role in furthering BBYO’s mission of providing more Jewish teens with more meaningful Jewish experiences.
The David Bittker Advisor of the Year Award is presented each year at BBYO’s AZA & BBG International Convention (IC) to an outstanding advisor who embodies the qualities that David L. Bittker portrayed. Bittker long served as a member of BBYO’s lay leadership. As a lay leader for BBYO, Bittker put BBYO first, taking on a variety of roles and responsibilities to meet the needs of the organization, an approach that he took in all of his volunteer endeavors. His desire to selflessly give his time, energy and resources toward strengthening the Jewish community is the very model of leadership BBYO seeks to model for its teens through the volunteer work of BBYO advisors.
March was BBYO's Advisor Appreciation Month. Chapters all around the International Order celebrated and honored their advisors for the countless hours they dedicate to BBYO each year.
