TOGETHER AS ONE, FOREVER UNITED SINCE 1944
Since its founding in 1944, the Order of the B’nai B’rith Girls (BBG) has served as the preeminent leadership program for girls within BBYO, offering a safe, inclusive, and dynamic platform from which generations of young Jewish women have developed their leadership skills, strengthened their Jewish identities, and formed lasting relationships within supportive communities. Among their peers, BBGs have proven through the ages that they continue to be at the forefront of society in building themselves as global citizens, community members, and influential leaders worldwide.
As we celebrate the 75th anniversary of our Movement’s sisterhood starting on Monday, April 22, 2019, BBYO is excited to launch a special, yearlong campaign honoring the historic and far-reaching impact of the B’nai B’rith Girls around the world. We invite BBGs of the past, present, and future to join together with friends, with families, and with us in celebrating the legacy of strong Jewish women everywhere through empowering community programs, networking and mentorship touch points, targeted fundraising initiatives, and so much more!

As we look to BBYO's Centennial, your photos could be used in some special celebratory projects. Plus, what a great chance to dust off the scrapbooks for a good laugh. While our hair styles may have changed, our tradition has stayed the same.

As part of a yearlong campaign honoring the Diamond (75th) Anniversary of the B’nai B’rith Girls (BBG), BBYO is proud to present the first iteration of our BBG at 75 Speaker Series this spring. A traveling showcase to continue worldwide throughout the 2019–2020 academic year, this Series will feature strong (Jewish female) role models from across all sectors of society, with the goal of inspiring and empowering a multi-generational audience of Jewish leaders—past, present, and future.

Strong Jewish Women Celebrating Strong Jewish Women:
Dormify was founded by young Jewish female entrepreneur, Amanda Zuckerman, and her mom, Karen, when their shopping experience ahead of Amanda’s freshman year of college proved that there wasn’t one place that had everything they needed in the realm of stylish room décor…so they created one—say hello to Dormify; a proud supporter of the B'nai B'rith Girls!
The International Order of the B'nai B'rith Girls stands strong today because of Anita M. Perlman. Anita dedicated decades of her life to building BBG around the world to ensure that young Jewish women had a powerful platform to lead and build the best friendships of their lives. Watch this video to learn about Anita's story.
