4,500 Jewish teen leaders, educators & professionals united in Dallas for IC 2017
Over Presidents’ Day weekend, February 16-20, 4,500 of the Jewish community’s top teen leaders, educators, professionals, and philanthropists from across the world came together in Dallas, Texas for BBYO International Convention (IC). Participants heard from inspiring speakers, deepened their leadership skills, served the local community, celebrated Shabbat together, and enjoyed exclusive music performances, all while doing their part to ensure a stronger Jewish future.
With more than 2,500 teen participants in Dallas, a 296% increase in participation over the past six years, IC 2017 demonstrates an increased teen demand for high-quality Jewish experiences with Jewish peers. The convention builds joy and enthusiasm for being “a part of something bigger” and, in addition to showcasing spirit and community pride, IC delegates joined in the democratic process of electing AZA and BBG’s next international board!
We extend our deepest thanks to all the Alephs, B’nai B’rith Girls, parents, alumni, advisors, and volunteers across Dallas for their hard work, warm welcome, and gracious hospitality. As we experienced this incredible moment together, we’re more inspired than ever to be the Jewish world’s home for every Jewish teen – anywhere and everywhere – for generations to come.
