Event Details

Every other year, Eastern Region holds a convention specifically designed for Juniors and Seniors. It is our privilege to welcome back Scott Fried, for his 11th consecutive Junior-Senior. He will be our guest speaker for the weekend. Scott’s programming will focus on love and self-respect relative to growing up in the age of HIV. The atmosphere that Scott creates and the education he provides during the weekend will be one that our BBYO members will cherish forever. We will also welcome guests from Zeta Beta Tau Fraternity, Alpha Epsilon Pi Fraternity and local Hillels who will be partnering with our teen coordinators and steerers to lead programming to prepare our teens for the challenges and opportunities that await them and talk about Jewish life at college. As always Shabbat will be celebrated and a dance will be held on Saturday night.
