This is the official site of the Cincinnati boys BBYO chapter, Mishpocha #490
Congratulations to Mishpocha men Zach Samuelson on his election as KIO Regional Godol (President) and Herbert Meisner, on his election as KIO Regional Shaliach (VP of Judaism) They will serve until December of 2013.
The history of our chapter Mishpocha means family in Hebrew. This has been our chapter name since our chapter has been started, which was around the 1920's! We were also the first chapter in our region of KIO (Kentucky-Indiana-Ohio).
Our chapter nickname, the Doctors, was dubbed onto us when sometime in the 1970's, members from our chapter dressed up in scrubs and surgery masks, and went around the city of Cincinnati doing good deeds! This is 100% true and completely hilarious!
Did you know that our official chapter colors are blue and white?
