The first event in the LEV series is dedicated to the value, Diversity.
We start of with a conversation about the diversity of Jewish experiences in Europe today. Starting from personal narratives that do not often get the spotlight within Jewish communities, the event is an invitation to look within our communities, to expand our understanding of diversity and to explore how communities relate to diversity and give it meaning.
Spoiler alert: In true Limmud fashion we do not have the answers. We have something much more valuable: We offer a safe space for exchange and encounter. Whatever you always wanted to know yet never dared to ask – this is your chance. Tickets are only £5 (and discounted places available for participants affected financially by Covid19)
For any questions please contact our team directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
