Annual Tzohar Conference 'Connecting the People to Judaism'


The religious-Zionist Tzohar rabbinical organization held its annual summer conference in central Jerusalem Monday. Hundreds of participants and dozens of rabbis, academics and other experts gathered from around the country and even abroad to attend the event at the Binyanei Ha'uma Convention Center.

The conference, titled "Talking About What's Important To You", began with a special prayer for the soldiers of the IDF, as they fight to protect the citizens of Israel from Gazan terrorist groups. A prayer was also said for the residents of southern Israel, who bear the brunt of the deadly rocket fire launched against Israeli population centers by Hamas and Islamic Jihad.
