THANK YOU, FLORIDA! The BBYO global family extends an enthusiastic, heartfelt THANK YOU to Florida's Jewish community for hosting BBYO International Convention 2018. We are honored to hold IC in Orlando, for the first time, as the local Jewish community celebrates 100 years of vibrant Jewish life. We are so appreciative of all that you did to prepare for our time here, for your warm welcome and for your loving hospitality. IC 2018 would not be possible without the support and energy of the Greater Orlando and South Florida Jewish communities. Thank you to Shayna Chazin, Scott Ehrlich, Robby Etzkin, Perle Gass, Marci Gottfried, Lori Green, Julie Levitt, Robin Mermelstein, Natalie Shrock, Elissa Silverman, Robin Siff, Shari Weissmark, Shari Wladis, the Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center, Congregation Ohev Shalom, David Posnack JCC, Jewish Academy of Orlando, Temple Shir Shalom, The Roth Family JCC and the unwavering dedication of the BBYO International Board of Directors. We also want to thank the Alephs, B'nai B'rith Girls, parents, alumni, advisors and volunteers of BBYO North Florida, Gold Coast and Miami Regions. In particular, we express deep gratitude to our local BBYO team: Jayme Epstein, Tina Donnelly, Skylar Haas, Samantha Heimsohen, Erica Levin, Gary Levin, Whitney Levy and Stacy Wanerman. As our Movement gathers for our largest International Convention yet, we are proud to celebrate AZA & BBG in a community rich with BBYO and Jewish history. As our leadership from across the world gathers for this tremendous moment, we are more inspired than ever to be the Jewish world's home for every Jewish teen, anywhere and everywhere, for generations to come.

TOGETHER WE WILL Jacob Lewis

Statement from the Prime Minister of Canada

It is with great pleasure that I welcome all delegates and young leaders to the 94th BBYO International Convention. I firmly believe that youth are not just the leaders of tomorrow, they are the leaders of today. This is not a belief I take lightly – day in and day out, I see the powerful changes that our young people can make in our world, whether it’s at their schools or in their communities. Thank you to the organizers of this amazing event and to all of you who are in attendance to discuss how you can create positive change. Please accept my warmest welcome and best wishes for a memorable event!

How can faith-based experiences offer comfort, guidance, structure and inspiration through these awesomely complicated teenage years?

Please visit the IC Welcome Center to speak with a member of the Customer Service Team.

HEALTHCARE ISSUES AND CONVENTION WELLNESS

Our Wellness Team will be in the IC Wellness Center located in Bayhill 27, and their office hours are listed throughout the IC 2018 Program Guide Delegate Schedule. If you require medicine or medical attention, please see an IC staff member who will contact the Wellness Team. In the case of emergencies, we will utilize the nearest hospital. If additional information, extended care or out-of-hotel medical services are needed, a member of the IC Leadership Team will contact your parents or guardians. For your own protection, you should carry health insurance numbers and information with you while traveling outside the hotel.

SPECIALTY MEALS, FOOD ALLERGIES AND GLATT KOSHER FOOD

All meals at IC 2018 are nut-free. If you identified a food allergy or food preference on your IC registration form, your dairy free, gluten free, vegan and Glatt Kosher meals will be available in the dining room. Glatt Kosher meals will be prepared onsite in a kashered kitchen with a fulltime Mashgiach overseeing kosher meal provisions. Specialty meals must be picked up at the specialty meal station in the dining room at the beginning of all meals. If you have any food concerns, please see Sherrie Stalarow or visit the IC Welcome Center. Please Note: The dining room cannot honor special requests.

OTHER DINING OPTIONS

To accommodate those who want additional food, there will be an option to order pizza, snacks and appetizers for late-night delivery. This service is pre-paid, credit-only and the arrangements are explicitly between the teen customer and the hotel. All options are vegetarian, but none are fully kosher. Orders must be placed through the IC App by 5:00 PM each day. Orders placed after the deadline may not be honored. Additionally, Sam and Anita’s Canteen & Café Hillel in the Regency Foyer, The Market on the lobby level and B-line Diner will be open daily with food, coffee and snacks available for purchase (Kosher options are available!).

VALUABLES, PASSPORTS AND VISAS

Checking valuables during registration is intended to help prevent property losses in the rooms and around the hotel. Please Note: Under no circumstances does BBYO accept liability for items brought to the hotel. For this reason, we ask that you do not leave your room without locking it, even if you are just going to the ice machine. Canadian and international delegates’ families should have a copy of their passport for easy faxing or emailing, as a backup.

VISITORS POLICY

There are no visiting days during IC. Please explain this to your friends and family so there are no misunderstandings or disappointments. Under no circumstance can any person not participating in IC come to any IC program site. The schedule is simply too packed!

LOST AND FOUND

There will be a ‘Lost and Found’ located at the IC Welcome Center in the Regency Foyer. All lost items will immediately be brought there. If it’s not there, your missing item has not yet been turned in.

NAME TAGS AND ROOM KEYS

All participants must wear their name tags at all times for security purposes. If you do not have your name tag around your neck, you will be asked to go back to your room to retrieve it. Please do not switch name tags. With more than 5,000 guests, it is important that we are able to keep track of everyone. If you misplace your room key, or if it doesn’t work, please go to the Hotel Front Desk during chofesh, free time or evening dismissal to replace the key. Please Note: The hotel keys are magnetic and should be kept at a distance from your cell phones.

EMBRACING INCLUSIVITY AT IC 2018

BBYO is proud to offer safe and welcoming opportunities for learning and growth to all Jewish teens regardless of background, denominational affiliation, gender, sexual orientation and socio-economic status, including those with a range of intellectual, emotional and physical abilities. This year at IC, we continue to make every effort to accommodate guests with different physical and intellectual abilities throughout the event. We will have fidgets accessible at programs for participants who may benefit from using them to assist in focusing on speakers, and teens will now have access to on-site social workers to assist with emotional challenges. We are ready to support you in having the very best experience possible.

NEED ASSISTANCE?

IC Staff will be wearing royal blue vests throughout IC. Volunteers will be wearing orange vests. Please find any of these adults should you need assistance. You can always receive assistance by visiting the IC Welcome Center.

CELEBRATING PLURALISM AT IC 2018

BBYO strives to create an environment where all Jewish teens can explore and cultivate their Jewish identity. One of the ways we promote this growth is through encountering new traditions, beliefs and practices while interacting with others from different backgrounds and perspectives. During Shabbat (from 5:30 PM on Friday through Havdalah at 6:45 PM on Saturday), all public spaces will be Shomer Shabbat. We encourage all participants, staff, volunteers and guests to put away their electronics during Shabbat, and to be as fully present with the IC 2018 community as possible.

CHAPTER SHOWCASE
