Since its founding in 1944, the International Order of the B’nai B’rith Girls (BBG) has served as the preeminent leadership program for young Jewish women. Now celebrating its 80th Anniversary, BBG’s mission is to continue empowering women, friends, and allies of all generations through meaningful experiences that build community around the values of strengthening Jewish identity, forming lasting friendships, developing leadership skills, and advocating for equality. Share your BBG story and help celebrate the legacy of strong Jewish women everywhere!
