Beth Emeth has partnered with BBYO — the world’s leading pluralistic Jewish teen movement — to offer middle school and high school students the opportunity to connect with one another, volunteer in the community, celebrate their Jewish heritage, prepare for leadership roles and travel the world together, all within a Jewish context.
Chapter Meetings (Grades 8-12) BBYO’s renowned leadership model of experiential democracy, with teens leading other teens and creating their own BBYO programs under the guidance of adult volunteers and staff, is carried out through AZA chapters (for young men) and BBG chapters (for young women). Our chapters meet every Wednesday (September through May, excluding holidays and school breaks) from 6pm to 8pm at the Prosserman JCC, 4588 Bathurst Street, Toronto, in Room 1-23. See bbyo.ca/beby for membership options.
Regional Programs (Grades 8-12) BBYO members organize and participate in leadership development conferences and Jewish identity programs as well as social activities like movie nights, dances and sports tournaments. See bbyo.ca/events for program registration. * Aug 29 / Members’ Beach Day Feb 8 / Fire & Ice
