The only way is to join SBL: http://www.sbl-site.org/ will have all the
information that you need. Look under meetings and you'll see the dates and
venues of the next ten years' meetings. But this is where Karl's "paywall"
kicks in: $80 for annual membership, $150-250 to just register for the
meeting, and that's before travel and housing. Not cheap. For those in the
academy, these are "business expenses". For anyone else, just expenses.

Shalom Yigal, thank you for the detailed follow up. You have the advantage
of being out of town, so you can stay in a nearby hotel and walk over... I'd
have to drive from the Peninsula...  Anyway, I didn't know about this
conference. Do you know perhaps how can I get my name of the list of this
conference so that I'll know about it in the future? 

Toda rabba,
Rivka Sherman-GOld

Dear Rivka,

The SBL meeting is from Shabbat through Tuesday. There is quite a big group
of Shabbat-observant people who attend. We usually get together for Shabbat
services and meals, in this case those interested will attend the local
synagogue and have pre-ordered meals at the Sabra Grill, which is kosher.
When submitting my proposals to speak, I specify that I cannot speak on
Shabbat, and when in fact one of my papers for this year was scheduled for
Shabbat I pointed it out and it was quickly re-scheduled. As far as just
sitting in on lectures on Shabbat, different people have different
approaches. 

As far as the specific e-listers meeting, this is an informal gathering held
in the exhibit hall during a break in the regular sessions. It is not an
"official" event. On the other hand, for those who are attending the SBL
meeting and staying at a nearby hotel, there is no reason not to come on
Shabbat.

I'd love to attend the meeting (I live in the SF area), but it's on Shabbat!


I know that many on this list do not observe the Shabbat, and many are not
Jewish, but nevertheless I find it a bit puzzling (and somewhat humorous)
that a meeting of the Society of Biblical Literature is held on Shabbat,
which basically excludes those of us who are Jewish and observant.

Too bad that meeting is behind a paywall higher than what I have on hand. I
live in town, but that paywall will keep me out.
