Liberal Judaism's Biennial Conference is the biggest event in our calendar and will take place from7pm on Friday 1 July until 4pm on Sunday 3 July 2016, at a brand new venue - the St Johns Hotel in Solihull. This wonderful Conference and Leisure hotel is only an eight minute walk from Solihull station, minutes away from the M42 and close to Birmingham International Airport. Liberal Judaism will have exclusive occupancy of this spacious and stylish hotel.

Liberal Judaism is in the initial stages of developing a new Siddur, this is a chance to be part of thinking what this will look like, but even more so it is an opportunity to think of new ways to use music, literature and arts within our communities. The Conference aims to combine study with practical explorations of what it means to enliven and enrich our congregations and our own personal spiritual, cultural and social Jewish lives. Rabbi Charley Baginsky, chair of the Biennial Weekend organising committee, said:
"Liberal Judaism has always been at the forefront of Progressive Jewish life, pushing us to think about the future in ways that can build on our heritage and our past"

Of course the social aspect of Biennial is always an essential part of the weekend, with plenty of opportunities to see old friends and make new ones, learn, discuss, share, sing and pray in a warm and friendly environment.
