Top Ten Jewish Sites for Teens
These Jewish Sites for Teens may encourage Jewish teenagers to learn more about and connect with their Jewish heritage.
AZA
The Aleph Zadik Aleph (AZA) is the fraternity component of BBYO for ninth through twelfth grade boys. Since its establishment in 1924, AZA has provided Jewish and personal enrichment to hundreds of thousands of young men throughout the world.
BBG
BBG offers young women, between the ninth and twelfth grade, the opportunity to enjoy social, athletic, community service and Judaic programming. BBG is a place where all Jewish teenage girls can have fun, develop relationships, embrace tradition and community, and find something inside themselves that only the B'nai B'rith Girls can bring out.
BBYO
BBYO provides identity-building and leadership development programs for Jewish teens. BBYO operates on the local, national and international levels through a fraternity/sorority-based chapter structure (AZA for boys and BBG for girls). Formerly affiliated with B'nai B'rith, in 2002 BBYO was restructured as an independent international organization.
Bnei Akiva of the U.K.
Bnei Akiva is the world's largest religious Zionist youth organisation. Bnei Akiva began its activities in the UK in 1939. The movement's main aim is the promotion of Religious Chalutzik Aliyah (immigration to Israel).
Bnei Akiva of the U.S. and Canada
Bnei Akiva of the US and Canada, the Religious Zionist Youth Movement, inspires and empowers the Jewish Youth of North America with a deep commitment to the our people (Am Yisrael), our land (Eretz Yisrael), and our Torah (Torat Yisrael) through a wide variety of informal educational programs.
NFTY
For over sixty years, the North American Federation of Temple Youth (NFTY) has offered thousands of young people the opportunity to explore and live Reform Judaism.
USY
The general aim of the United Synagogue Youth (USY) program is to bring about a meaningful and fully reciprocal encounter of Judaism, the Jewish people, and the Synagogue on one side, and the Jewish teenager on the other. USY is affiliated with Judaism's Conservative Movement.
