Simcha BBYO

About Us

Simcha BBYO (previously known as Maple BBYO) is a gender-inclusive chapter that meets in Vaughan. Programs are open to everyone, including members of the LGBTQ+ community and friends and family. Our goal is to create a space where Jewish LGBTQ+ teens and friends can connect with each other.

Simcha BBYO meets weekly on Wednesdays at the Schwartz/Reisman Centre (9600 Bathurst Street, Vaughan) from 6:30-8:00pm. Programs are planned by our members and can be anything of interest to us – arts & crafts, holiday celebrations, identity enrichment, and more! We also join together often with all chapters from across Toronto, Vaughan, and Hamilton for larger events including weekend retreats and shabbatons, leadership training, social events and so much more.
