BBYO is the world's leading pluralistic Jewish youth movement. As the first and most dynamically inclusive organization of its kind, every Jewish teen, of all backgrounds, anywhere in the world, will find an experience that provides the foundation for a meaningful Jewish life.


Savannah BBYO has a long history of over 70 years of creating more meaningful experiences for Jewish teens. We are part of Eastern Region, which is made up of North Carolina Council, Virginia Council, and Dixie Council (Savannah, Augusta, Charleston, Columbia, and Greenville). We focus on creating an atmosphere that develops leadership skills, friendships, and most importantly, Jewish identities. We hold several chapter events throughout the year and travel to conventions were local teens get to meet other Jewish teens from the southeast.


We hope to see you at our next event!
