KDVP workshops give teens tools for life



King David Victory Park Grade 8, 9, and 10 students recently participated in Trulife workshops on sexting and cyber-bullying, vaping, and addiction. Using music, dance, and slick performance, facilitators took students on a powerful and interactive journey through the dangers of being a teenager today, while imparting information on how to be more “street-wise” online and the dangers of vaping and substance abuse.

Global teen-led organisation, BBYO, launches in SA



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.

King David High Schools had an ad-Venture weekend



Shabbatonim may have been prevented by the pandemic, but King David School’s Venture educational programme for Grades 10 and 11 managed to replicate the Encounter experience in an action-packed few days recently.

Students heard Rabbi Benji Levy, an inspirational educator who came from Israel for the event. They also learned from some of the best rabbis, rebbetzins, and educators the community has to offer. They also enjoyed an escape room and illusionist show.
