2023 FJMC International Convention

Welcome to Registration for the

2023 FJMC Biennial International Convention


Please read the following registration details carefully before proceeding.

What's New with Registration?

This year, we're trying something a little different.  All of your options for arrival date, stay duration, room upgrades, extra room nights, and combinations with spouse/partner and children, regional subsidy credits, and installment credits will be selected below on this form and used to determine your total fees for convention.  

Your convention fees include the room you selected and the meals you'll be receiving.  If arriving on Thursday, you get 8 meals from Thu dinner to Sunday breakfast.  If you arrive on Friday (Shabbat Weekend) you get 5 meals from Friday dinner through Sunday breakfast.

The fields below will let you specify "member + partner" and enter your partner's name.  You can also select Member, Partner, and up to 2 children.  If you wish to register and pay for your partner separately, that registration MUST use a different email than the one you're using here.  CiviEvent will not let you use the same email for 2 separate registrations.

Shortly, you will receive an email from FJMC with a link to purchase additional options on Whova, the highly successful mobile and web app we used for our 2021 Virtual Convention. You might still have the Whova app installed on your phone if you attended in 2021.  When you click the link to Whova on your phone email app, it may or may not open Whova.  If it opens a browser like Safari or Chrome, that's OK.   The official Whova "event" for 2023 Convention will not be enabled until sometime in March.    But you can buy tickets for most of the planned tours and paid activities as well as "add" room nights if you registered for full convention but now decide that you want to come in a day or two early or stay later.

With Whova, you'll be able to access the 2023 convention – schedule, speakers, who's attending, upload your profile photo, connect with friends and arrange meetups, post messages, photos and short videos, collaborate, manage your agenda, and sign up for pre and post-convention activities.

How do I pay?

If you are registering after May 1, 2023, you must pay in full with a credit card.  A $25 transaction fee will also be applied to cover FJMC credit card processing expenses.

Ansh-eh Zafon (Canada) Members:  Your region may have made other arrangements for you to pay.  Please check with your club or regional officers for details.

Travel Insurance (IMPORTANT)

WE STRONGLY SUGGEST that everyone purchase 'no cause' travel insurance, which would allow you to submit a claim for reimbursement of your registration fees in the event that (due to Covid or other issue) your are disinclined to travel.  The FJMC is unlike an airline, where you can cancel up to 'almost the last minute' and get refunded.  The FJMC Convention has a legal contract with a caterer and the hotel.  Once we provide the number of attendees, they both lock in our numbers and our liability for the totals we provided.

Here are some links to travel insurance:

Covid-19 Policy

By registering for this event, I acknowledge that I may be asked to attest to my symptom-free status.  Further details regarding testing (or other mitigation efforts), if required, will be made available at a later date, and I agree to abide by all Covid protocols that may be instituted.  Note: policies enacted by the venue, city, state, or CDC all supersede any FJMC policies for this event.

Convention 2023 Profile
Enter Spouse, Partner, and, if attending, minor children attending with you.
A cell phone number is required.

Provide any dietary restrictions including: Vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, and food allergies. We are unable to accomodate all requests because our contract is bound by the policies of the caterer.

Who would you like to room with?

Event Fee(s)
There are 7 different items from which you may need to select an option. Please check all dropdowns and read the instructions provided. If your region has provided us with subsidies, they will be listed in "Regional Subsidies" and the amount you select will be subtracted from your total. If you paid into the Installment Program, your name will be listed with the amount you committed for the term of your payments. Select this to apply that amount as a credit to your total.

Select a Full Convention option if you are attending Convention Thursday through Sunday. You can add additional days before or after convention with other options below. Note that past conventions were Wed-Sun, but this year, we reduced the duration of "Full Convention" to Thu-Sun.

Select a Shabbat Weekend option if you are attending Convention Friday through Sunday. You can add additional days after convention with other options below.

Select the subsidy below that most closely matches your status in your region.

Only full convention attendees are eligible for the subsidies listed here. This is a long-standing FJMC rule. All registrations are audited for this selection. Do not select a subsidy unless you are coming to Full Convention from Thursday - Sunday. Contact your region or club for a subsidy for Shabbat Weekend, if you don't see a subsidy, or you have any questions, before submitting this form.

The IKC has raised over $100K to provide the FJMC with a fund to give tefillin and mezuzot to communities around the world that are struggling to maintain their Jewish identity and a Jewish presence in their cities. IKC donors will receive a gift bag at Convention containing a glass for your scotch tasting experience.  Learn more about IKC
