So what is BBYO…
History of BBYO
• 1923 – Jewish boys started a fraternity using Hebrew
letters “Aleph Zadik Aleph” to combat Greek fraternities
that rejected Jews.
• 1924 – May, 3 – AZA was founded.
• 1925 – AZA adopted by B’nai B’rith and became B’nai
B’rith Youth Organization.
• 1944 – April, 23 – BBG was founded.
• 2002 – BBYO broke away from B’nai B’rith and became
our own, independent organization, BBYO, Inc.
