First, Limmud has its own vibe, and you can feel it- so special. Then, there are the fantastic options of sessions to attend and freedom to attend them. I loved that differences were checked at the door. We were all there for the same purpose, to learn together as a Jewish people.
It’s an unparalleled combination of learning, community, intellectual stimulation, and just plain fun!
Limmud will challenge your Judaism and reinvigorate it. Limmud brings my family closer and keeps my kids connected to their Jewish heritage in a unique way.
A diverse and welcoming pop-up (intentional) community with great learning, culture, social and volunteer opportunities. A great way to taste your favorite Jewish ‘flavor’ varieties, whatever they may be, and have an opportunity to explore outside of your comfort zone. With amazing programs, prayer opportunities and networking possibilities it’s a must experience weekend away from NYC (in a great hotel, with a pool and hot tub)!
I think that my favorite thing about Limmud NY 2014 was the variety of subjects for sessions offered and the totally democratic approach to learning that they bring. I very much valued the opportunity to engage with the presenters, both during the sessions and outside of them, connect with them and share thoughts and stories on a personal level.
The atmosphere that was created by those who attended. I had fascinating conversations with people at meals, in the hallways, and in between sessions. It was a conducive atmosphere for learning, growing, and discovering yourself.
