Upon request, you will receive a registration form as an attached document. Print the registration form, fill in your details, calculate the price you have to pay, and send the form together with a cheque (cheques in foreign currencies are welcome) to the World Organization of Bukowinian Jews (as written in the registration form).
Since I cannot copy the prices table, I will quote some of the prices for you to get a general idea: 1 Person - 50 US$ A Couple - 90 US$ Every 3rd person coming - 45 US$
Hotel Prices for overnight stays are quoted in the registration form as well. These are negotiated prices for the Reunion comers (remember - this is a 5-star de luxe hotel). Hotel reservations should be made individually and independently, not through the committee or the World organization of Bukowinian Jews. Participants who so wish, may of course stay at other hotels. Please mark whether you are interested in participating in the Banquet. The price per person has not been finalized yet, but it should be somewhere in between 30-40US$ per person.
We thank you for your patience and cooperation and hope to see many of you in April in Tel Aviv .
