Schedule Changes and Daily Announcements:
Session locations are listed on this site, and any changes or announcements will be reflected here and posted at the Ayelet Registration Desk. Convention Program Committee members will also have daily updates.
All registered rabbis and spouses/partners may participate in the various programs and need to wear badges for identification and security purposes. (And to help colleagues remember our names!) Meals are served only to those wearing badges.
With such a complex program we all need to work together to make sure sessions begin on time. Please be prompt.
Cell Phones and Pagers:
Please be sure to set your phone, pager or laptop alarms and reminders to silent or vibrate during sessions and t’filot.
Members of the Convention Program Committee value your feedback. Please talk to us during the Convention and respond to the online survey you will receive after the Convention.
