Review for BBYO, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was in BBYO in the early 90's and had a truly transformation Jewish experience that has shaped my life. Not only did I marry someone I met through BBYO, but I had my first Israel Experience through ISI. My experience in BBYO led me to focus on a career in Jewish Communal Service in my 20's. BBYO is a wonderful Jewish experience and I hope my child will have the same opportunity that my husband and I did in shaping our Jewish identity.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

my experience as a youth in visiting Israel for the first time through ISI.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

create organized Israel trips for the parents and/or former alumni of BBYO who have never been to Israel.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  Former Volunteer & I was a BBYO advisor in Los Angeles -2001, I am trying to help raise money for BBYO in the GMR in 2008/2009.
