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.
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.
Limmud NY takes place at the Hyatt Regency Princeton, conveniently located 60 minutes south of Manhattan in Princeton, NJ. The hotel is easily accessible by public transportation – for more info about getting to the conference, visit our Site and Transportation page

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.
