At its heart, Limmud NY is a community built on active participation, where hundreds of people are both participant and volunteer. Every task taken on by a volunteer needs doing, otherwise it just wouldn’t get done.
How Can I Help?
There are many opportunities to share your skills both leading up to the conference and during the conference in order to help create our community. We also have opportunities throughout the year to support the operations of the organization.
This list will be updated as the conference approaches.

Each team is led by a chair or two co-chairs who sit on the Conference Steering Committee. Meet the lay-leaders who are creating Limmud NY 2020!
Create programming for kids and families, and make sure that Limmud NY is fun for our youngest participants.

Shabbat and Jewish Ritual Team
Foster a sense of spirituality and Shabbat peace at Limmud NY – select service leaders and ensure that they have the tools they need to succeed.
Work On a Discreet Pre-Conference Task
In addition to the planning teams, we also have other specific work that needs to be done. If you have applicable skills – or would like to learn how to do one of these roles – please be in touch!
Program Guide Proofreading
Help to ensure that our session listings and presenter bios are clear, grammatically correct, and free of typos.
Match roommates with each other and assign participants to hotel rooms while making sure that all participant’s needs and requests are honored (to the best of our abilities).
