The 35th International Conference on Jewish Genealogy, 6-10 July 2015, Jerusalem


From our venue at the Ramada Hotel – at the entrance to the city - you’re within easy walking distance to the Light Rail (Mount Herzl/Yad VaShem, the City Center/Old City and more), the Knesset, Israel Museum, Bible Lands Museum, Hebrew University Givat Ram campus, Cinema City and other Jerusalem landmarks.

This conference will be unique. Our Shabbaton (Friday-Saturday) program prior to the conference opening will offer special insights and opportunities. Exploration Sunday will offer diverse research and touring options.

Have family in Israel?  We can help arrange your family reunion.

In addition to the event’s lectures, workshops, resource center, networking opportunities and special events - many archives and repositories holding essential genealogical records will be at the conference. Many other one-of-a-kind programs will make this conference memorable.

We hope you will take advantage of this year’s Jerusalem conference to extend your stay - giving you and your family an opportunity to tour and learn about Israel. 

We look forward to personally welcoming each of you!
