Encounter 2004

Encounter 2004

On November 14 at Wembley Conference Centre, an amazing array of world-class speakers and international authors will be presenting on subjects ranging from Kabbalah to contemporary issues.

They’ll be addressing questions such as ‘The worst of times: how do we deal with them and why they come to good people’, ‘Why marry Jewish’ and ‘What would the world be like without Judaism and the Jewish People?’.

Encounter 2004 - Something special

A new, even bigger venue (with parking for everyone!). Our best ever line-up of world-class Jewish speakers and thinkers. A grand finale concert. And of course thousands of participants from every part of the community.

Something for everyone

At Encounter there really is something for everyone. As well as the day’s keynote address there will be five sessions each with a big choice of inspirational and thought provoking speakers. Plus there’ll be workshops, shows and debates. Or if you fancy a break you can take a look at the Jewish Life Exhibition, visit the stalls, browse some books, buy some presents or even treat yourself to a new painting! And if you feel peckish there’ll be plenty of food for all!


And don't forget the Youth

We want Encounter to be a great day for ALL ages. That’ s why there’ s plenty to do for all our younger conference participants. Thanks to our friends at Tribe there’s a range of programmes with a great choice of things to get involved with. Trained youth professionals will be providing the highest standards of supervision whilst delivering fun as well as informative activities. Drinks and snacks will be provided as well as a packed- style lunch.
