Dates and times
Conference is from Sunday 22 to Thursday 26 December
Shabbat Limmud is on Friday 20 and Saturday 21 December
Conference sessions begin in the morning on Sunday 22 December and run until mid-afternoon on Thursday 26 December. You can also join us for Shabbat Limmud (Friday 20 and Saturday 21 December) - a special Limmud treat.
Be there at the start
If you want to catch Conference from the moment it starts on Sunday morning, it’s a great idea to arrive on Saturday evening.
For a small additional payment you can check in after Shabbat on Saturday 21 December. We’ll be announcing the check-in times in December on the website and in joining instructions we'll mail out to you.
Families that are opting for early check-in are advised that we currently have no provision for babysitting on Saturday night. On Sunday morning there are sessions for families to attend together, but YTL, Teen Limmud, and Nursery, being after lunch on Sunday.
Shabbat Limmud is a great way to get stuck into the Conference atmosphere. Just like main conference, there will be excellent learning, brilliant social opportunities and a very warm community feeling. As we use less of the site and make our Shabbat community together, you'll end the weekend knowing lots of new people and feel energised for the week ahead.
The number of places for Shabbat Limmud – 20 and 21December – is restricted. So please apply early if you want to enjoy this very special Limmud treat.
The fee – additional to the fee for Conference – includes accommodation, a full programme and all meals from Friday evening.
As usual, there will be an Eruv (Shabbat boundary). There will be ensuite single rooms inside the boundary. Unfortunately it is not practical for us to extend the Eruv to the shared bathroom single and hotel accommodation. Younger families accommodation is outside the Eruv so for families with children for whom being outside of the Eruv would be an issue should contact the Limmud office. There will be facilities for everyone to leave possessions like siddurim and buggies inside the Eruv during Shabbat. Limmud's childcare provision is limited during Shabbat with babysitting, nursery and Young and Teen Limmud starting from Sunday afternoon.
But what if I cannot come for the whole week?
• You can come for part of the week or even for a day
• If you can't come for the whole of Conference it is possible to stay on-site for a few days; please see the prices page for information on days and accommodation options available (these are limited due to logistical constraints).
• Sorry – but for logistical reasons we can’t accommodate families for short stays
