Welcome to being a Limmud volunteer! You're one of thousands of Limmud volunteers around the world, each one being part of Limmud's own journey.

You are part of an important community. And as a Limmud volunteer you have been named as one of the top ten most influential people in the UK Jewish community by the Jewish Chronicle.

You can start large or small - it all makes a difference.

What is important is that all Limmud events are conceived, led and made by volunteers. Limmud events are created by a community for a community. It means that each one is unique reflecting the team that has put it together. I hope that you will feel empowered, and also supported by those of us who have done it before. I want each generation to be able to learn from the mistakes and experience of those who have gone before, while also being encouraged to push forward to create new initiatives (and make new mistakes) of your own.

Limmud volunteers also are given opportunities for learning and experiencing other activities. Limmud Scotland volunteer Elaine Samuel writes about how a Limmud Conference session about life in 1950s East London came to life with a walking tour.

If you would like to be part of the dynamic, active and dedicated team bringing you any of our events, please do get in touch, whether for the Conference team, the summer Limmud in the Woods, Regional Limmud teams in the UK, international teams and organisational teams taking overall coordination roles for marketing, finance, tech, fundraising and volunteer development through Limmud University.

At the moment the Conference team particularly welcomes people interested in helping families make the most of Conference. You don't need to have children to take on the role - though if you have been a child at some point in your life it will help. To find out more email the chairs.

If you are interested in helping with any of Limmud's future events, please contact volunteers@limmud.org.
