The Secret of Jewish Ingenuity
Encounter Conference 1996
On 1st December 1996, Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks delivered the closing address at the London Encounter Conference.
Rabbi Sacks and Dayan Ehrentreu originally asked Rabbi Yisroel Roll to organise and produce the Encounter Conference back in 1996, and it then attracted 1600 Jewish people to attend the educational conference. From 1996-2005, this became London’s largest annual Orthodox Educational event.
