If you do not see an event you’d like at the online registration site, this is because:

Yom Kippur

SEJ regrets that the start of this year’s conference overlaps with Yom Kippur. While we make every attempt to avoid conflicts with religious holidays, it’s not always possible. To assist attendees who observe the holiday, SEJ has arranged with a local synagogue, Congregation Har Shalom, to welcome SEJ attendees to services on Tuesday night and Wednesday. Services will take place at the Foothills Unitarian Church, 1815 Yorktown Avenue, Fort Collins, due to space constraints in the Har Shalom synagogue; times for services are forthcoming. There is a suggested donation of $72 per adult.

Based on attendee demand, SEJ is also exploring a break-fast meal for Wednesday night. Please contact co-chair Joshua Zaffos (email with subject “SEJ Yom Kippur”) for details, questions or suggestions.

Note: Most conference sessions will be audio-recorded, including the Wednesday workshops.
