EVENT DETAILS

Note: If you are going to pay by check, this on-line registration system won't work well because it only accepts credit card payments. Instead, send your check to Kavod v'Nichum, 8112 Sea Water Path, Columbia, MD 20145 with your registration request.

Center City Philadelphia
 is anchored by 8 square blocks of green space centered on Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. The activity level in Center City is energizing - from horse and buggies to shopping, restaurants, museums and even the cemetery where Ben Franklin is buried. Amazingly, there are two prominent Jewish institutions in the middle of the mix - Congregation Mikveh Israel  (CMI) founded in 1740, and the museum that spun off from the shul - the National Museum of American Jewish History (NMAJH). And right next door to the shul is a Holiday Inn. View map of Conference 2013 - Philadelphia - Center City

Food - Meals will be at Congregation Mikveh Israel, provided by a number of different Orthodox supervised caterers.
Meeting Space - The shul space will be supplemented by meeting rooms at the  Wyndham Hotel next door. 
Sleeping Rooms - The Wyndham Philadelphia Historical District is right next door to Congregation Mikveh Israel. Rooms are $119 a night ($130 including taxes). This is a great rate, for downtown Philadelphia. Located at 400 Arch Street, Philadelphia, PA  19106, the hotel offers both King and Doubles as well as free room wi-fi. To make reservations call 877-999-3223 and ask for the Kavod v'Nichum group. Fax - 215-923-4633. Please reserve rooms by May 7, 2013.
