In AZA & BBG, the chapter is your home-base. 

Each Aleph and BBG is part of a chapter; it's where you have meetings, plan programs, and hang with your brothers or sisters in your town. Local chapters connect as part of a council, region, or country and often come together for council or regional events, athletic leagues, conventions, and service, advocacy, and philanthropy projects.  Each chapter has a leadership board elected every six-months or annually by its members.

AZA and BBG count more than 600 chapters across the world, and there is one for everyone. Find your chapter by searching your zip code here. If you don't see a chapter in your area and want to start one, please email

We're growing and we want you to be part of the fun.


Начать главу

One of the greatest legacies any Aleph or BBG can leave is starting a new chapter or launching a new community in their council, region, or country. This is one of the fastest ways to grow BBYO around the world.

But why would you start a new chapter? Great question. There are three important questions to think about when it comes to chapter start-up:

  1. Имеет ли ваша глава имеет достаточно возможностей для лидерства для всех вовлеченных?

  2. Существуют ли в Вашем сообществе специализированные группы людей, которые могли бы сформировать главу (например, выпускники летнего лагеря или русскоязычные евреи)?

  3. Есть ли в вашем районе город, поселение или пригород, в котором есть еврейский народ, но нет главы?

There are many reasons to start a new chapter. Utilize these tools below to guide you through the process for creating and sustaining a new AZA, BBG, or BBYO chapter.

In AZA and BBG, we want you to take the reins and lead. As a member-led organization, we have teens at the front of the room and behind the scenes taking on leadership roles—from committees to elected positions—to support their chapter, council, region, country, and the entire International Order.
