Limmud Festival: Bring Festival To YouBook Now for Limmud Festival
What is Limmud Festival?
Limmud Festival is ‘a pioneering festival of Jewish learning’ (Jonathan Freedland, 2019).
It’s a place for community, learning, discovery, empowerment, diversity, debate, laughing, dancing, families, volunteering. Limmud Festival is a place for you to discover something new.
Our mission is that wherever you find yourself, Limmud will take you one step further on your Jewish journey. At the heart of Limmud Festival is an outstanding programme. From Hillel to Hummus, we’ve got everything you could imagine, and even more! This year we have divided the programme into eight dedicated tracks, each one bringing you into a fresh Jewish conversation, including an array of talented performers for your entertainment.
You really can create your own journey and curate a Limmud Festival experience that’s unique to you and one where you discover something new. Whether you’re 3 or 103, there’s something for you to discover.
Festival is built and run by volunteers, and your contribution is important. From the Yad scheme or Festival Makers programme, to our Madrichim team, to event sub-teams, to the volunteers who give an hour or two here and there, there’s always an opportunity for you to contribute to running Festival. Limmud Festival is truly made by you.
With hundreds of sessions and thousands of participants from around the UK and across the world making up the most vibrant Festival community, follow your passions or do something totally new, as you create connections and long lasting memories.
