Grade 6 students at King David Senior Primary Linksfield last week packed and supplied educational hampers to their outreach school, Houghton Primary, which has yet to return to full-time schooling due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Thanks to generous donors to the King David Schools Foundation, students in Houghton Primary’s Junior Phase received a pack containing age-appropriate worksheets, new stationery, a book and a small treat, along with a personal note written by King David Grade 4 and 5 students.

The initiative is part of teaching students the importance of chesed (kindness), a core value at King David. King David students are able to live this value through the school’s outreach programme, and participate in partnerships that support previously disadvantaged communities.

Global teen-led organisation, BBYO, launches in SA

Published

on

South Africa’s newest Jewish youth organisation, BBYO, led by teens for teens, was launched at King David Schools this past week.

A proud affiliate of the South African Zionist Federation (SAZF), BBYO spans more than 60 countries with 70 000 members worldwide. It had its roots in the United States in 1924, when Jewish teens, who were excluded from joining fraternities and sororities, started their own organisation centred on a strong Jewish identity, Zionism, leadership, and inclusivity. After nearly 100 years, BBYO has established itself as the leading Jewish organisation for connecting the next generation of Jewish teen leaders from around the world.

BBYO isn’t a youth movement. It exists in addition to teens’ current youth movement experience. High school students from Grades 8 to 11 are empowered through a year-round programme that is led by teens for their peers. They are supported by a dedicated team of professional staff in South Africa and globally who are deeply invested in their success.

Teen leaders connect through online meetups, digital programmes, and in-person travel experiences. BBYO offers many travel opportunities to visit Jewish communities in Argentina, Europe, and Israel, with the highlight of the year being BBYO’s US International Convention every February, which hosts more than 5 000 top teen leaders, educators, professionals, and philanthropists from around the world. Delegates hear from inspiring speakers, deepen leadership skills, celebrate Shabbat, have access to exclusive music performances, and build friendships from around the world. Local and international events are pluralistic, which means every Jew, regardless of observance level, will find a safe place to practice their Judaism.
