This November, BBYO’s movement partner in the former Soviet Union, AJT, is hosting the fifth annual International Conference (IC). Jewish teens, staff and educators from across Belarus, Georgia, Europe, Israel, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, North America, Moldova, Russia, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, and beyond will gather in Kiev, Ukraine for this historic event. AJT’s largest conference yet, with over 400 Jewish teens, will be a powerful weekend of learning, laughter, global leadership training, and Shabbat celebrations.
Alephs and B’nai B’rith Girls from around the world will have the chance to participate in a weeklong transformative journey through Ukraine. Ambassadors to Ukraine will visit Kiev, Ukraine to learn about the Jewish history in the region and unite with our AJT brothers and sisters to experience the largest renaissance of Jewish life worldwide. Very limited spots are available. Don’t miss this special opportunity!
All members are invited to apply. Russian-speaking Jewish teens are highly encouraged to be a part of this experience. No specific BBYO leadership criteria are necessary. All participants will be expected to run a follow-up program in their community and submit a reflection about their experience to their local press.
