DALLAS (WBAP/KLIF) – Second Gentleman, and husband of Vice President Kamala Harris will be in Dallas this week to deliver the keynote address at the BBYO International Convention.
According to organizers, more than 3,200 teens from 44 countries will attend the conference in Dallas February 15–20, representing the largest gathering of young Jewish leaders in the world.
Emhoff and Naftali Bennett, Israel’s 13th Prime Minister, will also host two separate roundtable sessions with teen leaders where they will dialogue on topics such as leadership, democracy, civic engagement, and antisemitism.
“In planning for this year’s convention, our conversations with teen leaders kept returning to the importance of democracy and the role it can and should play in addressing key issues,” shared Matt Grossman, CEO of BBYO. “This concept will be the pivotal point through much of the programming, including one-on-one roundtables with world leaders and influencers, learning sessions with scores of diverse educators, over 30 peer-led Shabbat services, and a multitude of activities that are intended to surprise and delight all those in attendance.”
Emhoff’s visit is part of his campaign to fight antisemitism.
