Limmud Tour of Britain
27 October @ 19:30 - 22:00
An event every week that begins at 19:30 on Tuesday, repeating until 27 October 2020
Join us on an adventure with Limmud around Britain without leaving home.
We are thrilled to present our first online Limmud Tour of Britain series. We will bring you presenters from the many thriving Jewish communities around Britain.
Come and explore local Jewish communities and history as well as the usual Limmud mix of topics of national and global interest. Each evening will be at least three sessions running in parallel over two time slots, so in true Limmud fashion – you will have plenty of choice!
