Shabbat with Rabbi Shmuley

For conference participants arriving in D.C. on Friday, August 12, we have scheduled two special dinners and a discussion session with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, author of 23 books, host of an award-winning national TV show, "Shalom in the Home," on TLC and host of "The Shmuley Show" on WABC radio in NYC. He also publishes two weekly syndicated columns appearing regularly in the Washington Post, The Jerusalem Post, AOL and other media outlets.

Rabbi Boteach will speak after the Shabbat dinner Friday, lead a discussion in mid-afternoon on Saturday, and lecture again after Havdalah services and dinner Saturday evening, August 13. Attendance at each dinner costs $72 per person. As for all meals during the conference, the food will be kosher.

One of the world's leading experts on values and relationships, he has written extensively on the Family, which in essence is what genealogists really care about. Rabbi Shmuley first came to world attention through his founding in 1988 of the Oxford University L'Chaim Society, an organization of Oxford students. Within three years it had become the second largest organization in Oxford's history. As Rabbi to Oxford's students for 11 years, he played host to and debated some of the world's great thinkers and statesmen. These included Mikhail Gorbachev, Stephen Hawking, Benjamin Netanyahu, Elie Wiesel and Simon Wiesenthal, to name just a few.

Rabbi Shmuley is a highly sought-after TV and radio guest, having appeared on shows ranging from "The Today Show" to "The View," "The O'Reilly Factor," "The Oprah Winfrey Show" and "Good Morning America." In 1999 he won the prestigious “Preacher of the Year” award from The London Times and was the subject of a full-length BBC documentary, "Moses of Oxford."

Gala: Fun, festive and affordable

This year's value-filled Gala (previously known as the Conference Banquet) is being cast as a lower-key event but with greater networking potential. Bowing to comments, we’ve scaled down the cost to $65 per person.

What will attending the Gala get you? An attractively printed Gala Journal will list the evening’s quality agenda, which thus far includes these high points:

  • Excellent-tasting kosher food, delicious hors d’oeuvres, and more substantial, scrumptious fare at a variety of buffet stations, and cash bars
  • A casual atmosphere that will allow you to meet, mix, mingle, and above all, to network and share your fabulous genealogical finds during the week
  • A presentation by the 10th Archivist of the U.S., David S. Ferriero. We are so fortunate that he will join us. (Read more about him here.)
  • The pleasure of honoring and applauding our outstanding IAJGS Achievement Awardees of the year, recognition for major and lifetime Jewish genealogical achievements
  • And for your after-dinner listening pleasure: the world-renowned Robyn Helzner Trio will captivate us with their charming wit and evocative melodies sung in Hebrew, Yiddish, Ladino, Russian and English from Jewish communities in five corners of the world. (Read more about them: http://www.helzner.com/trio.php)

You can register for the Gala before August 1.

Theater J coming to DC2011

moscows2Theater J, the highly regarded professional company housed in the Washington, D.C., Jewish Community Center, will present its production of "The Moscows of Nantucket" for DC2011 conference goers on Monday, August 15, in the Grand Hyatt Hotel at 8 p.m. Tickets will be $12 apiece and can be purchased on line at the conference registration site.

This witty, smart, multigenerational family comedy, with moments of poignant self-revelation and awareness, takes place on a summer weekend at the parental home in Nantucket. Watch the fur fly as brothers play out old family dramas, mixed with contemporary angst, passion fueled by booze, compulsive Blackberry checking and disclosed secrets. A new play by Sam Forman, it premiered May 11 and officially opened May 15 at Theater J for a scheduled month-long run.

In a 3½-star (out of 4) review in Washingtonian magazine, Leslie Milk observes that the Moscow family has "enough Jewish angst for Woody Allen, Jerry Seinfeld, and Larry David combined." Their plight "is rich comedic fodder for playwright Sam Forman. The one-liners fly as the clueless parents try to connect with their distant kids and Virginia tries to understand this strange brood," writes Milk. Read the review.

Hailed by The New York Times as "The Premier Theater for Premieres," and nominated for more than forty Helen Hayes Awards, Theater J has emerged as one of the most distinctive, progressive and respected Jewish theaters on the national and international scene. Go to Theater J's home page.

WOW - Lots to See and Do at the SIG/BOF Fair on Sunday

Explore the world of the Special Interest Groups (SIG) and Birds of A Feather (BOF) at our SIG/BOF Fair on Sunday afternoon from 2 PM to 5 PM in the spacious Constitution Ballroom of the Grand Hyatt Washington.

Attendees will have ample opportunity to visit with groups that are interested in doing research in the areas, countries, cities and towns (shtetls) where their ancestors once lived. Find out about the research that each group has done and is doing. See photos, maps and projects on display.

Meet "cousins" and compare family trees and research. Some groups may have T-shirts and other memorabilia for sale.

More than 40 organizations will be represented. Some of the groups have other than geographic focus; including DNA. Rabbinic, Vaudeville, and Mac (computers) groups.

This event will be fun for all, but will be of special interest to beginners and first time conference attendees.

Repository and Resource Fair
to be held Monday, August 15, 2011

Many facilities with vast data resources in the Washington area provide space on site for undertaking genealogical research.

If you’re considering spending time doing genealogical research while you're in Washington for DC2011, you won’t want to miss the Repository and Resource Fair from 2 to 5 p.m. on Monday. Representatives of some 30 Washington-area facilities will be on hand to offer you insight into their holdings and services. The event is scheduled early into the conference so you can visit some of them during your free time before you return home.

Bookmark this page and check back during the Spring for the detailed list of exhibitors.

Potential exhibitors should get in touch with Repository & Resource Fair coordinator
