Anyone Going to the JWI Conference to hear Rabbi Blau, Vicki Polin and Michael Salamon Speak?

Just curious if anyone is going to the conference? If you are maybe a group of us can meet somewhere? or if not, maybe someone can take notes and let us know how it went?

I'm not able to go, but am hopeful someone who reads this blog will be there.

Lost in the Shuffle: Jewish Survivors of Sexual Victimization
4:30 - 6:00 pm

Until recently the topic of sexual violence in Jewish communities has been too taboo to discuss. This workshop will provide a basic overview of how communities handled allegations in the past, what changes need to be made, and how we can make them. The workshop will encourage a dialogue between workshop participants.

Vicki Polin, Executive Director, The Awareness Center--the Jewish Coalition Against Sexual Assault/Abuse, Baltimore, MD
Rabbi Yosef Blau, Yeshiva University, NY
Dr. Michael J. Salamon, founder/director, Adult Developmental Center, Hewlett, NY

The Conference will be held at the Capital Hilton, 16th and K Street, NW, in Washington, D.C. USA. Hotel phone: 202-393-1000.
