The 41st Annual International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS) Conference will be held in historic in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, from August 2 through 5, 2021. The plans for the 2021 Conference have changed from previous conferences as well. The 2021 event will be more focused over a shorter time frame—now four days and nights at the Sheraton Philadelphia Downtown Hotel. One major change is that it will include a virtual component.

The conference will feature more than 100 speakers, with more than 250 sessions covering virtually every aspect of Jewish genealogy.

Ken Bravo of South Euclid, president of the IAJGS, will preside over the conference.

The keynote speaker will be Michael Hoberman, professor of American literature at Fitchburg State University in Fitchburg, Mass., and author of New Israel/New England: Jews and Puritans in Early America and A Hundred Acres of America: The Geography of Jewish American Literature.
