History of Limmud NY

For 30 years, the annual Limmud conference in England has impacted the lives of thousands.  In 2003, a group of six visionary volunteers decided to reinvigorate the New York Jewish community by bringing the experience home.  With a grant from the Picower Foundation, UJA-Federation provided funds to seed the creation of Limmud NY.  Limmud NY became one of the select residents of Bikkurim: An Incubator for New Jewish Ideas, and in January 2005 the first Limmud NY conference was held in the Catskills Mountains.
