CALLING ALL NEW MEMBERS!
New Member Weekend (formerly known as IT Convention) is an amazing kickoff to your BBYO career and a weekend you will never forget! Come join over 100 new BBYO members from all over Eastern PA, Delaware and Western NY, like yourself, for a weekend full of fun, energy and spirit while learning about the history of our incredible organization.
BBYO is a pluralistic organization and is open and welcoming to all levels of Judaic practice. We will have everything from educational programs, recreational activities, your first regional meeting, a variety of Shabbat services for you to choose from, a truly inspiring Liberty BBYO Havdallah Service, and a Saturday night dance. Most of all, you will be officially inducted as a BBYO member in a memorable induction ceremony.
The following teens can attend New Member Weekend:
- new BBYO members
- members who have never attended a NMW/IT Convention/Liberty Summit's Teeronim (Rookies) track before
- Liberty Region's Regional Board
- Yitzhak Rabin AZA and Kol Echad BBG chapter members (as long as they are hosting other teens in their home for the weekend)
- Teens who apply and are accepted as mentors for the weekend
