Dear Brothers and Sisters:

The Los Angeles County Tahlijes and Otyags invite you to attend the 2022 Grand Convocation to be held in Glendale, California from July 13-16, 2022. The Grand Convocation Committee is excited to welcome you to the Los Angeles area, where the sun always shines (well almost!). We’re rolling out the red carpet for your fun and enjoyment, planning an experience that will be forever memorable for all who attend. Please save the date and begin making your reservations (details and instructions are in this registration packet).

We’ve booked the four-star, centrally-located Hilton Glendale Hotel, where we’ve negotiated special rates on rooms (only $159 per night which includes daily breakfast buffet), activities and events. There are fabulous shopping malls and restaurants close by with all the amenities to go along with our beautiful weather. And, Hollywood, Downtown LA, and the beaches are easily accessible from Glendale (arrive early, stay late to enjoy the LA experience).

The closest airport is Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR, about 8 miles). The next closest airport is Los Angeles International Airport (LAX, about 28 miles), so we suggest booking your flights through Hollywood Burbank Airport, if possible.
