Top Ten Reasons Why We Joined AZA and BBG in the 70's
By Mike Cohen (JFK AZA) Reunion Committee
  • 10. We could digest Bob's Big Boy meals, then.
  • 9. We were too young to get into Y.E.S. or J.A.S.P. events.
  • 8. We wanted to be part of an organization we knew we would never let our children join.
  • 7. We needed to know if all those things they said about Edy Gershbock and about Chuck Feldman were true.
  • 6. We were rejected by Demolay.
  • 5. We strived for the five BBYO folds of Religious, Cultural, Athletic, Community Service, and Driving a beemer.
  • 4. We could learn 50 new words at the Kallahs and regional conventions, and none of the words would be in Hebrew.
  • 3. We wanted to be part of a Jewish group where services would be the last place we would be found on a Friday night.
  • 2. The boys thought B.B.G. referred to Bigger Busted Girls, and the girls were unaware A.Z.A. meant All Zeros Apply.
    And, the number one reason why we joined BBYO in the 70's
  • 1. We seeked leadership opportunities and figured if Mark Frydman could be a GLA Regional President, anybody could.
