We are honored to host two distinguished international experts in the field:

It is with a heavy heart that we write to inform you that the Course and Meeting scheduled to take place on 26 – 27 October, 2023 is cancelled due to the current situation in Israel.

Our first priority is the safety of our participants and have decided that the best and safety option is to postpone the event.

We hope to arrange new dates for the Course and Meeting in the near future.

We pray for the safety of our country, our citizens and our soldiers.

We thank you for your understanding.
