The Aleph Zadik Aleph (AZA)
The Aleph Zadik Aleph (AZA) is the fraternity component of BBYO. Since its establishment in 1924, AZA has provided Jewish and personal enrichment to hundreds of thousands of young men throughout the world. It's Hebrew letters - Aleph, Zadik, Aleph - stand for Ahava, Tzedakah, Ahdoot, which symbolize fraternal love, benevolence and harmony.
With emphasis on the importance of the well-rounded individual, AZA's unique programming includes social programming with B'nai B'rith Girls and other AZA chapters, community service projects, athletic tournaments and Judiac enrichment programs. The diversity of programming, coupled with the sense of camaraderie and leadership training, provided by AZA simply cannot be paralleled by any other youth organization. Often, AZA chapters plan events jointly with local BBG (B'nai B'rith Girls) chapters.
