Dear Friends,

Please find enclosed the program for the World Emunah 8th International Convention which will take place in Jerusalem between the 25th - 28th November, 2007. The convention will be followed by a conference, held in conjunction with the WZO Center for Spiritual Services, of representatives from the international network of Emunah Batei Midrash. (A separate program will follow).

We are anticipating the largest number of participants ever from Emunah world-wide. On the agenda are three core issues which are of major concern to us as the largest international women's religious Zionist organization:

1. our role in presenting Israel's stance and strengthening the bonds between
Diaspora Jewry and Israel

2. the Jewish family in the context of current challenges

3. Emunah's responsibility as a social welfare and educational organization
working towards the betterment of Israeli society

The conference is an ideal time to meet your Emunah counterparts from around the world and exchange ideas, as well as experience the scope of Emunah's activities in Israel.

We are enclosing a registration form together with accommodation details. Applications should be received not later than 15th October, 2007.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you.

Yours in Emunah,


Dr. Carole Golding
Convention Chairman
