Q&A

Is Kallah for you?
Kallah is a great program for Alephs and BBGs currently in 10th–12th grade who hold sh'lichim positions at the chapter, council, or regional level, have attended any conventions focused on Judaism, have participated in AZA and BBG Global Shabbat, or have a passion for Judaism.

How many teens attend Kallah?
Kallah welcomes around 200 Alephs and B’nai B’rith Girls each summer. Participants come from every region and countries from across the Order.

Who staffs Kallah?
The International Kallah staff includes a site director, program director, song leaders, Israeli counselors (sh'lichim), expert specialists, college-age counselors from around the world (madrichim), and an office manager. In addition, we have over 10 Jewish educators onsite representing a variety of denominations and viewpoints, including rabbis and trained educators.

What is the Kallah curriculum about?    
The Kallah curriculum allows participants to learn about and connect with Judaism in their own way. With a diverse community of Jewish educators, guest experts, and peers, participants explore ancient and current topics and ask and answer some of Judaism’s big questions. Limmud sessions are traditional classroom learning time; electives offer participants ways to learn about Judaism through creative outlets; and teen-led Shabbat, morning (Shacharit), and evening (Mincha) services offer teens the chance to create truly meaningful Jewish experiences.
