Frequently Asked Questions

What is Limmud NY?

A conference, a festival, a gathering of hundreds of Jews from all walks of life, all Jewish backgrounds, all lifestyles, and all ages. Three days of lectures, workshops, text-study sessions, discussions, exhibits, performances and much more – all planned by a community of volunteers.

In Hebrew, Limmud means ’learning‘ – and that’s what Limmud NY is all about. It’s an opportunity to craft your own Jewish world. To explore your connection to Jewish ideas and tradition. To meet people who share your curiosity and enthusiasm. To relax, reflect and celebrate.

Accommodations and Transportation

Limmud NY takes place at the Hilton Stamford Hotel and Executive Meeting Center, conveniently located 45 minutes north of Manhattan in Stamford, CT. The hotel is easily accessible by public transportation – for more info about getting to the conference, visit our Site and Transportation page

Limmud NY is proud to once again partner with Kay Caterers to bring delicious and nourishing meals to our community. All food served at Limmud NY is kosher, under the supervision of the Orthodox Union (OU). All meals will include vegetarian and child-friendly options.

Shabbat at Limmud NY

Over the course of Shabbat we’ll offer a wide range of activities, including different options for prayer, meditation, singing, learning and just plain having fun. Our intent is to create a community that will be joyful, restful, stimulating and inclusive. Most of all, we’ll strive to create Shabbat Shalom — a Shabbat of peace.

How can I help?

Volunteerism is a central tenet of Limmud NY. Our conference is run by volunteers, and there are plenty of ways for you to get involved, whether you’re helping out with customer service, program support, or conference operations. When you register for the conference you’ll be able to indicate your volunteer preference, and we’ll be in touch to schedule you for a shift or two. We’re also always looking for help planning the conference year-round, for more information visit our volunteer page or email info@limmudny.org.

Live in the Area or Can’t Make It For The Entire Weekend?

Limmud NY offers a sunday-only commuter option for participants who cannot attend the whole conference or do not wish to stay in the hotel. The prices include all programming and activities, meals, snacks, and conference materials. There are a limited number of spaces for all of these options, so early sign up is recommended.

Is There Financial Aid Available?

Our goal is to make Limmud NY affordable for anyone who would like to participate. This includes singles, couples, families, full-time students, young professionals, retirees, educators, not-for-profit professionals, and anyone else for whom cost may be an issue. Please note that financial aid is specifically applied to registration costs and does not include additional expenses such as Friday/Monday lunch.
