More about our Convention's theme, "Sweet Home Manhattan"

Welcome to our Beit Matoq Manhattan, 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, Beit Matoq, 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 bayit, or home, we call MHR (Manhattan Region) from our actual homes, themselves! Join our BBYO kehilla, community, 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
