Dear friends,
     We are thrilled to announce that our 32nd Annual Gathering will take place at the St. Louis Grand Marriott Hotel on November 4-7, 2022. We are looking forward to hugging – sharing with one another – and let’s not forget the dancing together again!! 
     We will continue to hold some virtual gatherings on “zoom” during the coming months to provide our community of Survivors and Descendants the opportunity to come together and stay connected until we can meet in person again. For the time being we look forward to “virtually“  seeing you on “zoom” –  Hearing from interesting speakers – and holding discussion groups on topics of interest to us. 
     Please take good care – stay well – and don’t forget to be good to yourselves!!!

Stephanie Seltzer, President

St. Louis Arch   St. Louis Marriott Hotel

We are proud and thrilled to welcome you to beautiful St. Louis, for the 32nd Annual WFJCSH&D Conference and family gathering which will take place November 4-7, 2022. St Louis is known as “The Gateway to the West.” Local attractions include the new Holocaust Museum, which we have arranged a private tour of on Monday November 7, a brand-new aquarium, a history museum, an art museum, a science center,  the Gateway Arch museum and more. For sports fans, we are also home to the eleven time world champion Cardinals and the 2019 Stanley Cup Champion St. Louis Blues. Tours of Busch Stadium are available. Another star attraction is Main Street, a quaint old-time cobblestone shopping area, in St. Charles, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis. Stay before or after the conference to explore!

We are not short of eateries which include the world-famous Ted Drews Frozen Custard and Crown Candy. We have a couple of fine Jewish delis. One is Pumpernickles and the other is Kohns, a Kosher deli which was started by a Holocaust survivor and is now run by his children. We have an area known as “The Hill” which features a number of terrific Italian restaurants. 

The Marriott Grand Hotel has instituted enhanced cleaning and safety procedures to ensure our health and safety, and we continue to host  virtual programs before our 32nd Annual IN PERSON CONFERENCE in November.

The St Louis Jewish Community is happy and honored to be part of planning this conference here. We look forward to having you all here in the near future. As Judy Garland famously sang, “Meet Me in St. Louis!”
