AN EXCITING TIME FOR BBYO!

February was an exciting month for us: Over a hundred teens attended our annual Super Bowl Party at the Schwartz/Reisman Centre, top teen leaders from across the region gathered for Winter Regional Executive Workshops to sharpen skills and plan for the months ahead, we hosted an afternoon of Dodgeball and Yoga for members from across the region, and we welcomed over 120 teens to Invite Night including 24 potential new members - many of whom then attended Chapter Rush programs and subsequently joined their local chapter!

There's lot's more excitement coming up in March. Check out the Upcoming Events section below to learn more.

Whether you're in Toronto, Vaughan or Richmond Hill, there is a BBYO chapter that's perfect for you! Weekly activities are planned by the chapter’s teen leaders in conjunction with the chapter’s adult advisor. Activities can be anything of interest to the teens in a particular chapter – community service, holiday celebrations, athletics and more. Click here to learn more about our local chapters.

In addition to chapter meetings, our seven chapters from across the Greater Toronto Area come together often for larger events like weekend retreats and shabbatons, leadership training, social programs and more. Click here to learn more about our programs.

ADVISOR APPRECIATION MONTH!

BBYO advisors and madrichim are committed volunteers who dedicate hundreds of hours to BBYO every year and strive to help BBYO members and their chapters reach their full potential. While we thank them throughout the year, we take the month of March to especially celebrate our chapter advisors.

They’re “frientors” and role models, and BBYO wouldn’t be the same without them. Join us this month in thanking our six wonderful volunteer advisors who work with chapters across the Greater Toronto Area:

  • Rochelle Derlick - Chapter Ahava BBG #2447
  • Michael Gallowitz - Chapter Achim AZA #1016
  • Joanne Apter - Chapter Chaverot BBG #2307
  • Sam Paisley - Chapter Exodus AZA #1111
  • Eitan Rachamim - Chapter Magen AZA #2360
  • Elaine Raifman - Chapter L'Chaim BBG #2444

We also have four incredible volunteer madrichim who work with our chapters: Shia Cooperman-Green, Adam Goodman, Edan Kelner and Michelle Naftalis.

Thank you to our volunteer advisors and madrichim for helping BBYO teens develop critical leadership skills while learning more about their Jewish culture and heritage!
