In May, over 600 Jewish professionals and volunteer leaders from across North America will converge on New Orleans for the Jewish Community Centers of North America Biennial.

The May 6 to 9 conference will be at the Hilton Riverside downtown, right as the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival concludes. There will be over 70 sessions for delegates.

Keynote speakers include Chris Brogan, president of Human Business Works; educator Erica Brown, scholar-in-residence for the Jewish Federation of Greater Washington; and Scott Cowen, president of Tulane University.

At the awards luncheon on May 7, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band will perform, and founder Sandra Jaffe and her son, current director Ben Jaffe, will speak about the venue’s history and Jewish connections.

That night, the delegates are invited to a party the New Orleans JCC will be throwing at Tipitina’s.

The JCCA includes over 350 JCC, YM-YWHA and camp sites in the United States and Canada.
Members of the New Orleans Jewish community are urged to volunteer at the conference. Volunteers receive free admission to the conference on the days of their shifts, though that does not include meals.

Volunteers are needed to serve as ambassadors and welcome guests, provide information about the biennial and about New Orleans to delegates, direct participants to sessions, and help set up a conference-wide luncheon.

Volunteers may sign up online at nojcc.org or download the form and drop it off at the Uptown or Metairie JCCs. For further information, contact Ashley Kirschman at Ashley@nojcc.org or (504) 897-0143.
