Registration and check-in will be open from 9:00 to 9:30am. The program will begin promptly at 9:30am. The celebration luncheon for all registered participants will take place from 12:00 to 1:30pm. The meal will be supervised by the Orthodox Vaad of Philadelphia. The symposium will conclude at 5:00pm. We ask that all participants plan to leave the facilities directly after the final session as another event is scheduled to follow the symposium.
