(Weekend schedule to come.) From VIP guests, to Shabbat services, to AZA and BBG business meetings, and more: Convention has something for every Aleph and BBG. 

This is a members-only event! Join BBYO today so you don't miss out!

 

More about our Convention's theme, "Sweet Home Manhattan"
Ashrei yoshvei veitekha, and welcome to our Sweet Home Manhattan. In previous years, we have held our Spring Convention outside of the Five Boroughs. This year, we are excited to bring you Convention from your very own, sweet home in the heart of the greatest city in the world, New York City! During these trying times, it is important to take a step back and appreciate this incredible home we call MHR (Manhattan Region) from our actual homes, themselves! Join your fellow BBYO teens for the best Convention of your lives. You will experience unforgettable programming, speakers, services, AZA/BBG traditions, and even some time in-person with your BBYO friends! This will be a Convention you’ll never forget!

 

Cost: $36.00
