Limmud Elements @ Festival
6 December 2020 – 20 December 2020
Limmud Elements @ Festival [LE@F] is designed to enable Limmud volunteers from around the world to connect, develop skills and access the support they need as individual volunteers and as representatives of their Limmud groups.
Due to the pandemic, the difficulties with planning in-person events, and international travel, this year LE@F will take place virtually. To help participants make the most of their Festival experience, LE@F will take place on the three Sundays leading up to Festival. LE@F participants, who complete the training will receive free admission to Festival 2020.
LE@F 2020 will have a participation fee of £10. In case volunteers are economically affected by the pandemic, and this price is prohibitive, please contact us.
Please read all the information about the programme and how to register below.
When is it?
Limmud Elements @ Festival programme will take place on Sundays, December 6th 13th and 20th, and each session will be approximately 3 hours. Limmud North America and Limmud FSU volunteers don’t need to tune in live to the sessions on December 6th and 20th respectively as eFestvial and E-Limmud can coincide with LE@F. Volunteers will be reacquired to watch the recording within that week. Timings will be confirmed closer to the dates, once we have a sense of where volunteers are joining from, to make the training as accessible as possible. We appreciate that the timings may not work for everyone, but as Limmud, we will do our best!
Who should come?
Training this year is targeted to newer core members of your team. The programme has been tailored for them and will be most valuable for them.
We respect that it is up to each Limmud group to decide which volunteers to nominate and that who can come will be dependent on many factors.
Those that take part are expected to commit at least one year of volunteering to their Limmud group, if they take up the free admission to Festival.
If you are unsure which participants to send, please contact me to discuss.
What will the Elements @ Festival programme cover?
The virtual training will incorporate key elements of the Training on Tour programme, and therefore best suited to those who have not yet participated in a lot of Limmud training.
The training will be facilitated by experienced Limmudniks and presenters, incorporating Jewish learning.
We will also incorporate core skills training, relevant to all Limmud volunteers
Participants will also be expected to engage in one mentoring session, to be arranged at their own time convenience.
Great! What do we do next in order to register?
Step 1: All volunteers should complete the Limmud Elements @ Festival 2020 Application Form before November 2nd. This form includes an agreement that in return for free admission to Festival, participants will take part in all the online sessions throughout December.
Step 2: The volunteer will then be emailed joining instructions for LE@F and directed to the Limmud website to pay the participation fee.
