Our Ideologies

Pluralism

Our people share a common space and live as a kehillah (community). We believe that we must acknowledge our diversity and adopt a form of pluralism based on the following:

 

Contraction – we create space for diversity
Companionship – we find friendship in diversity
Education – we learn from diversity
Celebration – we embrace diversity

​

Peer Leadership 

BBYO’s international leadership model prides itself on fun and meaningful teen-led programming. Our members are empowered and trained to be effective, inpiring leaders. 

​

Activism 

Rooted in Jewish obligation and BBYO tradition, our teens practice Tikkun Olam – repairing the world around us. By implementing their own campaigns at the local, regional and international level, teens gain invaluable experiences in the areas of community service, philanthropy, and advocacy, cultivating important skills to become effective change makers and contributing members of the greater Jewish community.

​

Zionism 

We share a commitment to the expression of Jewish peoplehood in the modern day State of Israel. Our teens develop an understanding and appreciation of Jewish and Israeli texts, history and culture in the formation of our participant’s National Jewish identity.

​

Judaism 

Jewish values, traditions and practices run through everything we do. BBYO encourages teens to find meaning in Judaism and to develop their own Jewish identities.
