Prague 2018

REGISTRATION FORM, PROGRAMME AND PARTNERS' PROGRAMME


To apply please download and print off the Registration Form

After completion, save and email the form to convention@cantors.eu. Accommodation details are on page 3 of the form.

This year the delegate fee is separate from food. Your delegate fee, lower than before (£195, Students £120) covers ECA costs of bringing the cantors and choir from Jerusalem to be our teachers and mentors. For delegates it covers all teaching sessions; morning and afternoon refreshments; concert; and walking tour of Jewish Prague. Shabbat meals @ £50 should be booked & paid for separately at the time of booking. Lunches may be purchased at the café on site.

(You may request a letter from ECA when booking that you can send to your Kehilla / Community or others to encourage their support for your attendance)

The overall programme (some details are still draft) is below:
