We’re navigating a very different season than we had anticipated just a few weeks ago. 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

Non-political and non-sectarian, the Scouts established and developed a framework based on education and values, to engage youth in a variety of social and enjoyable activities.
These coeducational activities encourage and focus on personal development, friendship and camaraderie, a “giving” and involved community, foster democratic group life with an emphasis on personal initiative, leadership and excellence, knowledge of nature, love of country and protecting the environment.
In order to maintain a connection between the Israeli Scouts movement in Israel and North American Jewry, the Tzofim expands its programming to North America.
The chapters in the states focus on the core values of the Israeli Scouts Movement in Israel as well as helping the youth develop and maintain a strong Israeli and Jewish identity.
“Shevet Chen” in the San Fernando Valley stands as the largest chapter of the Tzofim in North America, with over 200 participants.
Shevet Chen reaches youth ages 9-18, in grades 3-12, and provides their participants beyond a social experience; participants of gain a higher understanding of the meaning of their Jewish heritage and strengthen their bond with Israel, thereby fostering and sustaining a strong Israeli and Jewish identity.
Shevet Chen conducts meaningful events and activities throughout the year.
Conducted mainly in Hebrew, activities take place once a week and are aimed at the development of our youth’s intellect, social skills, and morals through activities tailored for specific age groups.
In addition to standard weekly activities, Shevet Chen organizes special activities such as celebrations of Israeli holidays, Friday night Shabbat services and community service.
Shevet Chen is currently located at Temple Aliyah, 6025 Valley Circle Boulevard Woodland Hills, CA 91367
