As IC is coming to a close, it's never too early to start thinking about IC 2024. Can you guess where it is?... Well if you read the title of this article you already know!! 

During this year's IC, I got to experience so many meaningful programs such as Opening Ceremonies, Shabbat and Havdalah, as well as so many different interesting programs. I can’t wait to see what next year's programming looks like. With so many new chapters and communities around the order also means new creative ideas brought to the table.

My favorite part of IC will always be Shabbat, because of all of the different service opportunities, Onegs, separates and Spirit. This year on Friday, I decided to go to the camp fire themed service because it is very similar to the shabbat theme on a summer program. Following Friday night, on Saturday morning, my friends and I decided to go to the theater themed shabbat services based off all the different musicals on broadway

Another highlight was the 2nd Annual BBYO Block Party, there were so many games, activities and so much more. This year the theme was a Dallas Carnival. One of the activities I went to was Karaoke night! It took place in the Music Studio where mostly all of the programs involving music took place.

Lastly, Who could forget about the concert!? This year the lineup consisted of Nicky Yours, 24Kgolden and Cash Cash. It was so cool to see everyone all together without having to wear masks. As it being my second IC this was definitely one of the big events that I look forward to the most because it is a way to meet so many new people from so many other regions and countries. Every year, BBYO brings in so many guest speakers and music artists whether it’s for the concert or it someone who shares their experiences to make an impact. 

Next year in Orlando, BBYO will be celebrating the 100th anniversary, in which IC will be the biggest and most insane convention BBYO has ever held and It is one that you won’t want to miss.
