T

he Michigan Region,

St. Louis Council
Inter-Regional BBYO conven-
tion was filled with lots of
new friends and tons of fun,
not to mention the Jewish
heritage we all share.
During the weekend plann-
ed by BBG Third Vice Pre-
sient Liz Greenberg and AZA
Third Vice President Jon
Freed, the convention par-
ticipants got a small taste of
our community. They visited
the Holocaust Memorial
Center and talked to a sur-
vivor, went shopping in
downtown Birmingham,
visited the Cranbrook In-
stitute of Science to see the
Lasera show, participated in
the Machar BBG homeless
dance and attended services
at many temples and
synagogues. Many people
from out of town saw the
similarities between their
communities and the Detroit
Jewish community.
"This was my first IRC and
it's been such an experience,"

see the shared values and
how we all have the same goal
— to make BBYO the best
that it can be. I will definite-
ly go on another one."
BBYO as the tie is what
made this weekend so special.
One discussion was set aside
to share ideas. This one pro-
gram gave all the par-
ticipants a sense of unity.
All 36 of the out-of-town
participants were housed by
the 33 Detroiters involved.
This gave everyone involved a
chance to talk to someone
from a different area about
BBYO, Judaism or anything
else they felt like discussing.
"Putting the young Jewish
communities of these three
major cities together is an in-
tegral part of the future of our
Jewish culture," said Lindsey
Dienstag of Chicago and Dan
Loiterstein of St. Louis.
Michigan Region is involv-
ed in one inter-regional con-
vention each year. This pro-
gram, which brings together
BBYOers from all over, is a
highlight for everyone involv-
ed. The region will par-
ticipate in another inter-
regional convention next year.
As one IRC participant put it,
the 1988-1989 inter-regional
convention "was the best
ever." ❑
