Dear Yefim and everyone else on this email discussion list:

The conference schedule includes over 200 separate events which will be posted as soon as we can. I am thrilled that many in your SIG want to come. Please refer to my article in the Winter edition of AVOTAYNU to see a rough outline of the conference. I don't know if this listserv can support an attachment, but I will try to attach it here. If the attachment does not work, it will soon be posted on the conference website at: It is being reprinted with permission is generally accurate, although we have changed the SHAREFair to be two hours - running from 3-5 pm on Sunday just before the Opening Ceremonies.

The conference will run until Friday, August 10th, at noon, in the tradition of most IAJGS conferences.

In General, the conference begins Sunday morning, August 5, with opening lectures on IAJGS conferences and how to use the mobile device app beginning at 8:30 am in the Hilton Hotel. We will break at 10:45 am until 3 pm when we will have the SHAREFair with refreshments.  At 5 pm we expect to have about a two hour Opening Plenary Session featuring: Marian Tursky, Chairman of the Board of POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews, and Rabbi Michael Schudrich, the chief rabbi of Poland. We will also be treated to a special theatrical performance by Witold Dębrowski of Grodzka Gate - TeatrNN in Lublin, Poland.

Hi Robinn,  thanks for all work you are doing and helping others.

I am personally coming to the conference, but I am getting a lot of messages from members of my SIG about conference SCHEDULE.   Many want to come,  but they do not know the schedule and would like also to travel to some places, but without schedule it is very hard to do.

When are you planning to put the schedule online?

All the best to you and to conference organizers.
