AZA was founded on May
3, 1924, in Omaha, Neb., by
a group of young Jewish
men under the leadership of
adviser, Sam Beber, a
young Omaha lawyer. The
organization soon spread to
Kansas City, Lincoln, and
Des Moines. It reached
Michigan when a chapter
was chartered in Grand
Rapids (No. 5) on July 6,
1924. It was the first chap-

ter east of the Mississippi
The first AZA chapter in
Detroit, known as Detroit
AZA No. 63, was founded in
1927, and soon AZA became
the first Jewish youth pro-
gram sponsored by
synagogues and temples in
the area. AZA went inter-
national with the founding
of Calgary AZA No. 31 in
1926, and in 1929 Theodor
Herzl AZA No. 112 was
founded in Windsor, Ont. It
serves the Jewish youth of
that Canadian city along
with Yachad BBG.
Today, Michigan Region
BBYO is one of 36 such
regions and serves over
1,200 Jewish youth in 37
separate AZA and BBG
chapters. Besides the U.S.
and Canada, BBYO serves
Jewish youth in England,
Scotland, Ireland, France,
South Africa, Australia,
Curacao, South America,
and, of course, in Israel
through Noar L'Noar
(Youth to Youth).
