Biography represents the author during their participation in BBYO.
This week's parsha is when Moses learns he must act as a messenger for G-d, to get the Israelites out of Egypt. He does not initially view himself as a leader, but he learns that G-d will support him and everyone who puts in work and effort. This applies to issues we are facing now such as racism and anti-Semitism, because we have an obligation to help as Jews and as messengers.
In this week’s Torah portion, Parshat Miketz, Joseph famously interprets dreams by communicating with G-d. There are many moments of déjà vu and parallels throughout Joseph's life, but is this calculated, or left to chance?
The Aleph Zadik Aleph (AZA) and the B’nai B’rith Girls (BBG) are a fraternity and sorority for Jewish teens—together, we are BBYO. Since our founding in 1924 (AZA) and 1944 (BBG), we have been member-led. Our priorities and programs reflect the interests and issues that matter most to us. Our pursuits are as diverse as our participants.
AZA and BBG welcome Jewish teens of all backgrounds, denominations, gender, race, sexual orientations, and socio-economic status as well as those with a range of intellectual, emotional, and physical abilities.
