The conference will once again be held in the Park Heights JCC, in the conference rooms on the second floor –  5700 Park Heights Ave, Baltimore, MD 21215.  Check-in begins at 8:15 am, and the conference ends at 5 pm.   There is ample parking on site.  Lunch can be purchased at the Eden Cafe, a dairy restaurant on the first floor of the JCC that is has kashrus supervision from the Star-K of Baltimore.  (Please contact them directly with questions about their menu; a copy of the menu is available online.)   Special hotel pricing is available to conference attendees. A variety of Jewishly oriented curriculum will be available to view, and Jewish learning games and activities will be available to purchase.
