OLAH conferences bring together women from all backgrounds from all over Europe for a unique exclusive mind-blowing program where we are all being enriched, exposed to, and connected to our Jewish identity, and to one another.

During the conference we go through a unique journey that was developed especially for Jewish women in Europe from all backgrounds.

We will be exploring and learning different aspects and layers of our identity and heritage. We will step through the cycle of life and through the  Jewish calendar in an extraordinary way, that will stay with wherever we go.


Our conference is for European Jewish women  age 30+

We will meet to connect, to be inspired, to touch our deepest inner soul, to learn together and from one another.

We combine simplicity and depth, laughter and tears, luxury and fun, questioning, thinking, but mainly stretching our horizon, pushing up our sky as high as it gets.

This special conference is a partnership with the very welcoming Jewish community of Lisbon together with various Jewish global organizations.

During the conference we will tour and get to know the Jewish community of Portugal.

Glatt Kosher meals will be provided at the Altis 5-star hotel.

His fascination resulted in leaving his successful career as a lawyer and banker in Cologne, moving to Tel Aviv, and converting to Judaism at the age of 30. Eight years later, in 2013, he won the famous Israeli cooking show „Masterchef“, within which he convinced the jury by combining traditional German food with Kosher gourmet cooking. He's published 3 bestseller books and hosts TV shows that are successful in both countries. He brings his culinary creations to special events and workshops all over the world. That is why he is known all over Israel and Germany to build a bridge in between his former and his current environments and is often called a culinary ambassador.
