Choose from over 70 lectures, seminars, panel discussions, and interactive workshops—in English and Russian.
Meet and hear world-renowned academics, rabbis, professors, community leaders, psychologists, cantors, TV hosts, and journalists. Presenters will address a broad range of topics, such as “The Kabbalah of Making Money”, “Israel and Global Politics”, and “Gourmet Kosher Cooking”, to name a few.
