Limmud around the UK
UK Community Limmud events are among British Jewry's most inspiring phenomena.
Annually, upwards of 3,000 people around the United Kingdom attend one of these events in towns and cities up and down the United Kingdom. Showcasing the best local presenters - together with renowned UK and international presenters – "Day Limmuds" (the most popular of the UK Community Limmud events) offer participants the chance to come together to learn in an informal, vibrant atmosphere, to be inspired and to "go one stage further on their Jewish journey".
Conceived, led and driven by volunteers from local communities, UK Community Day Limmuds are often the highlight of the local Jewish communal calendar, bringing cross-communal local teams together to create something innovative and exciting. If you are interested in establishing a UK Community Limmud team, or getting involved in an event listed here, email Ruth and Cathy, the UK Community Limmud Support Chairs, at firstname.lastname@example.org
From the more established teams to newer teams in their infancy, Limmud is currently active in 16 communities across the country.
