Drew Corson AZA
by Joey Shuster
Drew Corson AZA worked hard on recruitment in the past month. The board engaged in many activities with the AITs (new members) varying from ice skating with the Jay Levine’s new members to explaining all the fun and amazing things that we have experienced through BBYO. We plan on more activities involving the AITs coming up soon including a sleepover where we will induct them in to this wonderful order.

On Wednesday, March 11, we had dinner and a meeting with the international godol/president of BBYO. Our region (Kentucky Indiana and Ohio) recently had two members elected to international board and we hope to see them have a great term and make BBYO a better organization.

Louisville BBYO will soon be giving out awards to teens who have stood out as leaders and made a big impact in this city. We will have a dodge ball tournament at the JCC for our members. Any Jewish teen wishing to join can come to events and contact any board member for information on upcoming events and meetings.

Jay Levine BBG
by Abby Balkin
Jay Levine BBG started this month off with a bang. We began with a MIT program to help ease our new members into our chapter and then had a fabulous Dinner/Shabbat that was “Night In Italy” themed. At our Night In Italy, we had a create-your-own pasta bar and then ended the night by making beautiful macaroni art.

This month we also chose our new Stand-Up Cause (community service project). As a chapter, we chose to help Gilda’s Club, we have so many ideas planned to really help make a difference in the community.

This month is not yet over and we still have so many things planned. Coming up very soon is our regional event, Kallah! We are so excited to be able to have a fun weekend with many other Jewish teens that live in this KIO BBYO region.

We will end this month with our six-folds sleepover, where we hope we can get the entire chapter together and have a great night learning about the BBG six folds. We are also hoping to celebrate Passover by having a Chocolate Seder for Jay Levine BBG.

Teen Connection

On Saturday, March 14, 12 middle schoolers attended the Teen Connection Game Craze Late Night. We had fun playing video games in the video game truck, eating pizza, making our own sundaes, doing a Havdalah service and playing games in the lower gym.

Eli Schramko, Ethan Tuvlin, David Bornstein, Sophia Goldberg and Abigail and Eliza Brodsky helped plan the event.
Our next event is a progressive dinner on Friday, April 24, 5:30-7:30 p.m. For more information, contact Glenn Sadle, gsadle@jewishlouisville.org or 502-238-2701.
