Q&A

Is Kallah for you?
Kallah is a great program for Alephs and BBGs currently in 10th through 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.

Is the food at Kallah Kosher?
Perlman Camp is a Kosher facility that only serves foods that have been produced under rabbinical supervision.

What do I do about medication?
Participants must register in advance with CampMeds, a service that provides pre-packaged, pre-dosaged medication to participants who require it. There is a $250 fee for those who do not register and arrive at camp with their medications. The exceptions to this are inhalers, birth control, epi-pens, nasal sprays, injectable medications, prescription ointments, and refrigerated medication.

How do I get to Kallah?
Teens can either be dropped off directly at camp by a parent or guardian, or they can fly into the local airport, Newark Liberty International Airport, Newark, NJ (EWR), where they'll be met by BBYO staff and taken to their program by bus.

  • Additional travel information will become available after registration opens!
