BY US, FOR US
Over the decades, AZA and BBG have taken on new causes, social challenges, and initiatives. All of this work at every level is guided by our Movement's priorities. These priorities and operating principles are a reflection of our shared values and represent the interests and passions of Alephs and BBGs worldwide.
The power of the BBYO International Order comes from each Aleph and B’nai B’rith Girl. Strengthening the Jewish People and making the world a better place starts with us.
BBYO’s programming incorporates the Five Folds of AZA and the Six Folds of BBG—including social action, education and Judaism—to ensure high-quality content.
Our grassroots service, advocacy and philanthropy campaign helps us give back to our local and global communities—anytime, anywhere.
BBYO is our home, and Israel is our Homeland. Throughout the year, we learn Israeli history, culture, and current events through diverse perspectives.
When we connect with each other, we’re able to cross borders and cultures to form lasting bonds and unite the global Jewish community.
The Jewish people teach l’dor v’dor, the importance of passing values, tradition, and ritual from generation to generation; just as we do here in AZA and BBG.
Our history is long and storied, and through our rituals and traditions we stand on the shoulders of the Alephs and BBGs who came before us. Their vision and comittment to our future allow us to stand taller today.
AZA and BBG have always been a democracy. From open elections, the legislative process, and an inclusive leadership model, we want every member to be prepared to lead in their own way.
BBYO is committed to creating a mentally, emotionally, socially, and physically safe environment for all teens. We strive to build in our teens the ability to face adversity and developmental challenges and thrive.
One of the ways AZA & BBG impact the local and global community is by rallying to raise funds to support important causes. Chapters take pride in applying for grants and managing their budgets.
