As we all ride out the many local and global developments impacting our school schedules, our extracurricular activities, and our regular routines, we know that we can count on each other—thank goodness. We will keep our spirits up, stay connected with one another, and work as hard as we always have to connect Jewish teens and young adults around the world to share our ideas, learn together, make the world a better place, and have a wildly fun time while doing it. Our worldwide network of teens, volunteers, and professionals are uniting to provide the power and impact of BBYO and our partners in new, adaptable, and innovative ways so that wherever Jewish teens and young adults are, we can enjoy everything our movement has to offer, any time we want, online. Over the coming days, this new online space will continue to evolve with exciting opportunities, and we’ll begin to offer programming on a schedule that will feel a lot like a special ‘TV channel’ that you can tune into and enjoy from whatever time zone you’re in as often as you’d like. There’ll even be global events that we can all share in whether we’re across town or halfway around the world. AZA, BBG, and the global Jewish community have never been stronger, and nothing’s going to stop us now. Feel free to share everything we’re offering here with any Jewish teen or young adult in your life—BBYO member or not. We want everyone to feel like they have a place to be and a community to learn and laugh with right now. Stay happy and healthy! Together As One, Forever United As One Crew, The Alephs and B'nai B'rith Girls of BBYO read less
