Limmud NY 2019 Conference (Friday, February 15 – Monday, February 18, 2019)
Limmud NY 2019 is a collaboration with our anchor partners to create this exciting new event: Drisha Institute for Jewish Education, Hadar, Hillel, Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies, Shalom Hartman Institute of North America, The Jewish Theological Seminary and Camp Ramah. Together we will bring you a festival that celebrates the rich diversity of Jewish culture, life and learning through text study, music, art, hands-on-workshops, film, performances and more.
The weekend begins at Romemu (165 W.105 St, New York, NY 10025) for a festive Shabbat dinner and learning. We then move to Congregation Rodeph Sholom (7 W. 83rd St., New York, NY 10024) for our end of Shabbat programming including a Havdalah service, performances and a variety of learning opportunities. Our conference continues on Sunday at Congregation Rodeph Sholom for a day-long festival of Jewish culture, learning, celebration and fun. The learning continues on Monday at Congregation Rodeph Sholom with a special Limmud track: Happiness and Healing Resources in Jewish Life.
