Event Details

Open to any Jewish Teen in 8th - 12th Grade!

Eliza Orlins, Survivor and Amazing Race star, public defender, political candidate, and all-around awesome person, joins BBYO Manhattan Region on Sunday, 1/31 at 2PM to kick off the new semester with a live Q&A led by our teen-leaders and an interactive game with Eliza.

Eliza is a Manhattan public defender and outspoken advocate for our city’s most vulnerable. For more than a decade, she has represented over 3,000 New Yorkers who otherwise would not have been able to afford a lawyer.  In 2004, she competed on CBS’s Survivor, an experience that netted her a national following, which she uses to advocate on behalf of criminal justice reform and other social justice issues. In 2020, Eliza announced her candidacy for Manhattan DA, with a platform designed to transform criminal justice and make New York safer for everyone. 

We're excited to hear Eliza's story and have some fun on 1/31!

All proceeds will go to support BBYO Manhattan Region and one chapter's Stand Up causes. 

Cost: $10.00


Who is this event for?
Kickoff is for any Jewish teen in the 8th - 12th grade. You do NOT need to be a BBYO member to attend this event.

Where's the Zoom link?
We'll email you the Zoom link and passcode the Friday before the event.

Why are you charging?
We're charging $10 because program registration fees like this ensure the money MHR needs to function, succeed, and provide transformative Jewish experiences for Jewish teens. We're also donating a portion of the proceeds to one chapter's Stand UP cause.

Wait, do new members come for free?
Yes! If you join BBYO between January 12 and January 31, please email Jon at [email protected] for a coupon code which grants you free entry! You also get to join Eliza's team for our interactive portion!

I'm a member of my chapter board. How can I win the donation to our Stand UP Cause and UBER Eats gift cards?
The chapter who welcomes the most new members to their chapter between January 12 and January 31 wins a sizeable donation to their chapter's Stand UP cause along with UBER Eats gift cards for each member of the chapter board!

I have more questions, what should I do?
