The DPS Committee would like to offer our heartfelt apologies for scheduling the 2022 London DPS meeting over Yom Kippur. We have also realized that Yom Kippur starts on the last day of the meeting in 2024. Choosing these dates was an oversight on our part. It was unintentional and we are sorry for all the inconveniences it causes. We have instituted processes to ensure that this type of oversight does not happen again.
The SOC and LOC will accommodate requests of speakers who observe Yom Kippur not to be scheduled on those dates. In addition, there will be no virtual poster session on Yom Kippur.
The LOC will provide information regarding services at local synagogues for those wishing to observe the holiday.
