Can I present a session?
It is a core Limmud value that all presenters are participants and all participants can be presenters.
The option to offer a session will be available on our application when we launch in mid-October. There will be a deadline to apply to present, which we will announce with our launch.
Families and Young & Teen Limmud at Festival
Every year at Festival, families make up a vital part of the event. Children are the future of Limmud and we love seeing them around the site, whether they be enthusiastically taking part in the Young & Teen Limmud programme with their Madrichim (youth leaders), crawling around the bar, or attending sessions after hours with their parents. Coming to Festival with your children is a great way to get a balance of quality time together and apart, and share in meaningful Jewish experiences.
Our Families & YTL teams are working hard and will announce the structure of each programme when Festival launches in mid-October.
Shabbat at Festival
Shabbat Limmud will take place from 25-26 December and we’d be honoured if you’d join us.
Our Shabbat volunteer team are working hard to put together what this year’s Festival at Shabbat will look this time. We promise that although the setting might be different, the same enriching, wonderful and special experience that is created, will still be there.
We will announce how Shabbat at Festival will look when registration opens in mid-October.
I have additional needs, what about me?
Participant care is always central to our events and we are working with other organisations to ensure our online platform is accessible. We will be able to share more details when we launch in mid-October.

How can I get involved and help?
Limmud is run almost entirely by volunteers, and we’ll need lots of people to help with all aspects of the event. There are plenty of ways to get involved either before or during Festival and we will announce these opportunities when we launch in mid-October.
