Limmud NY is an annual conference celebrating Learning, Diversity, and Community


Limmud is Hebrew for “learning” and Limmud NY is devoted to Jewish learning in every conceivable form, from learning Torah to learning how to make gefilte fish; from Middle Eastern politics to Jewish Kirtan chanting; from Refuseniks to slam poetry; from Schneerson to Seinfeld; from Kol Nidre to Klezmer.


Each year, over 700 Jews, ranging from infants to grandparents, of all denominations – Reform, Conservative, Reconstructionist, Orthodox, secular, post-denominational – and all political affiliations gather to celebrate the richness of Jewish life for an extended retreat filled with sessions, performances, meals, late night jam sessions and endless opportunities to learn about themselves and each other. At Limmud NY, everyone is a teacher and everyone is a student.


Limmud NY creates community through volunteering and only has one paid employee. Our countless volunteers are empowered to oversee every aspect of the event, beginning a year in advance and continuing on-site throughout the weekend. Limmud NY is a participatory event, a communal collaboration, a celebration of what is possible when we all work together.
