BBYO's Jewish Enrichment Institute
You are invited to join us for a dynamic and engaging pre-IC summit that will help some of BBYO’s top teen leaders deliver better, deeper, and more content-rich Jewish programming to their chapters, councils, and regions. And in the process, we hope you’ll be inspired through personal growth and opportunities to interact with other impressive and committed BBYO leaders. You’ll have the choice to choose 1 of 3 JEI tracks to participate in:

  • Spiritual Service: Teens will have the opportunity to learn how to lead meditation and yoga experiences, and to develop spiritual, meaningful, and relevant prayer experiences in BBYO. Shalom Mayberg, BBYO’s acclaimed meditation and yoga practitioner and founder of The Chamesh Project, will help facilitate this track.  
  • Musical Service: Teens will have the opportunity to learn how to song lead and to develop musical, meaningful, and engaging prayer experiences and community-building experiences in BBYO. Eric Hunker and Happie Hoffman, BBYO’s head song leaders, will facilitate this track.
  • Community Service: Teens will have the opportunity to learn about deeply impactful social justice movements, and how to bring high quality and content-rich Stand Up programs and campaigns back to their chapters, councils, and regions. This track will feature opportunities to engage with leading social activists and organizations in the Baltimore area.

If you are unsure which track to choose, or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Ira Dounn, BBYO’s Director of Jewish Enrichment, at idounn@bbyo.org.
