sure to attend future conferences so they will be able to compare
them with the next conference the New York JGS hosts!!!
..... The Conference ran as smoothly as melted butter and as crisp as
a croissant. A veritable feast!!! Congratulations to all
specially Linda Cantor, Hadassah Lipsius, Gloria Freund, and Roni
It is hard to include everyone in a thank you list but I know that
our own Sigger, Renee Steinig, played an important part in the
organising too. Thank you, Renee.
I have heard enthusiastically >from a number of attendees and do hope
they will send in some reports of relevance to our SIG.
No-one so far mentioned that conference-goers were in for a big
surprise as the registration area was designed to resemble Ellis
Island. This must have been quite emotional for Siggers whose
families had arrived in the USA >from Europe decades ago.

MODERATOR NOTE: Any further congratulations to the New
York conference organizers should be sent off-list.
Suggestions for next year's conference should be sent
to the 2007 Salt Lake City organisers, not to the
