My name is Stacey Gayle Pasternak, and I am a Jew. I feel extremely lucky to be a Jew, not only because Jews make up only 0.2% of the world's population, but also because I get to join some incredibly impactful youth groups. Namely, BBYO.
For those of you who don't know, BBYO stands for the B'nai B'rith Youth Organization. It is a teen-led Jewish youth group movement with the slogan, "More Jewish Teens, More Meaningful Jewish Experiences."
