Welcome to J-West 2013!

We are proud to announce that Kol Shalom in Portland, OR will be hosting the fifth annual J-West Conference, a West Coast gathering of cultural, humanist, and secular Jews. The conference is a time to see old friends, make new ones, and build connections among individuals and communities. It is a forum for secular Jewish organizations to come together and share resources, ideas, and inspiration for sustaining and promoting Jewish culture and history. We hope that you will walk away from these two days newly energized and enthusiastic, ready to go back to your communities and get involved!

We also invite you to make the J-West Conference a centerpiece of your summer vacation. Below are a few links that highlight the city of Portland and the hotel where the conference is occurring.
