Conference Host


The 41st IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy was originally planned to take place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, but, owing to COVID-19, it will now meet as an all-virtual conference from Sunday, August 1 through Thursday, August 5, 2021.

The conferences is hosted by the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS), an umbrella organization of more than 90 Jewish genealogical organizations worldwide. The IAJGS coordinates and organizes activities such as the annual IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy and provides a unified voice as the spokesperson on behalf of its members. The IAJGS’s vision is of a worldwide network of Jewish genealogical research organizations and partners working together as one coherent, effective, and respected community—enabling people to succeed in researching Jewish ancestry and heritage.

The IAJGS conference chair is Judi Missel, who can be reached at
