These sessions cover everything from beginner to advanced topics, ensuring valuable takeaways for every attendee.

3. Networking with Like-Minded Enthusiasts: You could stay home and watch webinars but this is an in-person conference. It’s a gathering of passionate genealogy enthusiasts. Meet others who share your interests, exchange tips, and maybe even find a distant relative!

4. Exclusive Access to Resources: Attendees gain access to a wealth of resources, including the latest research tools and databases specific to Jewish genealogy and access to mentors and translators.

5. Vibrant Community Engagement: During the conference there will be special interest groups (SIGs) Research Divisions (RDs), and Birds of a Feather (BoF) gatherings. These are all opportunities for you to engage more with the community. If you’re a first timer, consider attending the “First Timers BoF” held during the conference.
