About Ohio Northern Region

BBYO Ohio Northern Region is comprised of chapters in Northern Ohio. We have 13 chapters repesenting over 600 Jewish teens in our area. By becoming a member of Ohio Northern Region, teens are afforded the opportunity to experience local programming in their communities, regional programming such as dances, community service days, sports events, and weekend-long conventions, and international programming at large scale conferences and BBYO Summer Experiences.

Our chapters hold events every week at locations around the region. Events are planned by teens, for teens and programming ranges from fun activities like ice skating, to more serious programming around social justice or leadership development. A parent, advisor, or regional staff­ member is always on hand to ensure safety and health.

Fun Fact: ONR's mascot is The Cat in the Hat

Through youth-led and staff-supported programs, BBYO Ohio Northern Region gives our members opportunities to develop leadership skills and positively affect their communities, the world, and themselves. We constantly strive to provide more Jewish teens with more meaningful Jewish experiences each and every day, so that they may become the future Jewish leaders in their communities and in the Jewish world at large.
