 Torah in Motion’s 10th annual conference will be held August 2-5, 2018 in upstate NY at the newly renovated and beautiful Marriott Hotel, Syracuse, and our conference has been approved for up to 15.5 CME credits. Baruch shehechiyanu vekeyamanu v’higeyanu lazman hazeh. 

The AAA Four Diamond Award hotel was originally built in 1924 and an $80 million renovation was completed last year, restoring the hotel to its original grandeur. There are many cafes, shops, a museum of science and technology with an attached IMAX theatre and planetarium all within a very short walk of the hotel. The hotel is a four-hour drive from both Toronto and New York City.

This beautiful setting will serve as a backdrop to a great Shabbat weekend of inspiring learning and camaraderie. The weekend has become a highlight of the summer for so many. 

We have a full parallel track of general interest, so feel free to invite friends and family who are not medical professionals to join us for the weekend.

Looking forward to seeing you at JME 2018!

It is with great sadness we note the passing of Rabbi Ozer Glickman z"l, a mentor and friend, who was scheduled to speak at this year's conference. An obituary by Rabbi Daniel Feldman (who will be speaking at the conference) is here
