We are delighted to announce that the entertainment for the Philly2009 Banquet will be Yisrael Campbell -- widely regarded as a premiere standup comedian in Israel -- he's an original and erudite comedian who has lived in Jerusalem and now lives in New York City. However, the journey that led Yisrael to The Holy Land began a long time ago in a place far, far away: he actually was born "Christopher Campbell," raised Catholic, and grew up in Philadelphia. For more about Yisrael, see his website at www.yisraelcampbell.com or check under "program" at www.philly2009.org.
Yisrael will certainly entertain us ---laughing will be a wonderful way to end the very hectic conference week. We are lucky that he has agreed to be with us. This is a banquet you will not want to miss! It will take place on Thursday, August 6.
If you have already registered, and want to add 1 or more banquet tickets to your registration, please go to the conference website, www.philly2009.org and click on "Registration Update."
