National Organization of American Mohalim Conference Marks 20th Anniversary
Nearly 300 Reform Mohalim/ot to Gather in Chicago
The Board and faculty of the Brit Milah Program of Reform Judaism and NOAM (National Organization of American Mohalim), the CCAR, HUC-JIR, and the URJ announce the 20th Anniversary NOAM Conference. This historic anniversary is being marked by an international conference that will be held Thursday, October 27 through Sunday, October 30, in Chicago, Illinois. Nearly 300 Mohalim/ot will come together to learn with leading scholars of the Reform Movement, as well as with experts in the area of Brit Milah. This is a rare opportunity for NOAM's long distance community to come together and for colleagues, who generally communicate with each other by email and telephone, to meet each other.
The conference sponsors congratulate all of the men and women who have dedicated themselves and their lives to providing their meaningful ritual service to the Jewish community, and pays tribute to all of their teachers and mentors.
