The Oseh Shalom Synagogue had been in existence for a number of years, and it finally got their own building in 1991 after holding services and Hebrew school in a small six-sided building for a number of years. Then the desire to have a youth group arose within the synagogue. Many youth groups came to Oseh to vie for the position of youth group for the Synagogue. After listening to all of them, the Synagogue decided to go with BBYO. Choosing between Baltimore and D.C. Council, the Synagogue chose D.C. Council because of the closeness of Laurel to Rockville.
