Red River Region has been buzzing more than ever since our last update!


Let’s start in December. Early in the month, Red River held our annual ‘Coffee House’ program. Our region is filled to the brim with musical and comedic talents among many others and this was the perfect opportunity to showcase just that! Later on in the month, two of our chapters- Gabriels (Bnai Brith Girls) and Alophim (Aleph Tzadik Aleph) held holiday themed programs. Gabriels’ annual ‘Channukah Party Extravaganza’ was an evening filled with driedel spinning, cookie decorating, snacking and laughter that left all BBG’s with smiled on their faces. Alophim’s ‘Holiday Feast’ embraced a well-known Jewish tradition of Chinese food dinners and movie watching on Christmas Eve, a night of brotherhood and bonding well spent indeed.
After a brief hiatus for winter vacation, our BBYO chapters are all back in the city and ready to program through the rest of the school year! Early in January, Red River Region teamed up with teens from Camp Massad, BB Camp as well as other Jewish organizations throughout the city (ie Synagogues) to plan the annual ‘Teen Shabbat’. This year’s theme was Disney which was reflected in the décor, ice breaker games and discussion topics, as well as our tune of choice for ‘Adon Olam’ (A whole New World from the movie “Aladdin”). The goal of Teen Shabbat is to bring Jewish teens together from all corners of the city, and this year’s dinner did just that! Congratulations to Elly Coodin and Sophie Hershfield as well as their dedicated planning committee on the huge success!
With each day that goes by, Red River Region is one step closer to a number of exciting events coming up! On February 7th we will be having our annual ‘Beau and Sweetheart Dance’ which has sparked major interest this year with a Region wide competition to see who’s ‘Prom-Posal’ is most creative/fun/outlandish/adorable. Only a few sleeps afterwards, our largest IC Delegation in history will be heading off for an action packed weekend in Atlanta, Georgia. In between all of these programs and events, chapters have already begun to prep and plan for our annual Winter Convention. This year, RRR is honoured to have the Grand Aleph Gadol of the BBYO order, Sam Perlen, join us!
