The Jewish Community of Estonia organised its 12th annual Yahad Conference between 7-9 September 2018 in the town of Parnu. The Yahad conference brought together over 500 Jews of all ages and walks of life in a unique atmosphere of Jewish learning and togetherness. Participants of this three-day Jewish-themed conference took part in numerous lectures, seminars and workshops, activities and concerts covering a wide range of topics.
In 2018, Yahad celebrated a number of anniversaries – 100 years of the Republic of Estonia, 70 years of the State of Israel, 30 years of rebirth of the Jewish Community of Estonia and 5 years of the Tallinn Jewish Kindergarten AVIV!. These dates were an underlying theme of the programme.
