The programme for Limmud Festival 2018 will be released closer to December but in the meantime here is the link to last year’s programme.
A stellar programme is always at the heart of any Limmud event – and Limmud Festival 2018 is no exception. With more combinations of sessions available than stars in the sky, it is your opportunity to curate a Limmud Festival journey unique to you!
This year we have divided the programme into eight dedicated tracks, each one bringing you into a Jewish conversation. Regardless of what gets the cogs in your brain turning, there’s definitely something here for you to get involved in.
Arts and Culture
From literature to photography, and graphic novels to film festivals, the Arts and Culture track focuses on gathering the creative minds directing conversations on the global Jewish stage.
Modern Society and Social Change
Bringing together the issues that matter to society at large with the conversations impacting our Jewish communities in the UK and further afield, Contemporary Society provides an opportunity to explore the challenges and triumphs that are transforming the world we live in.
History and Politics
Learn something new from voices past, present and future, and delve into the worlds of history, journalism and politics. Whether you’re looking to discover histories closer to home or debate today’s most compelling global topics, there is much to discover in History and Politics sessions.
Mind, Body and Soul
Creating a holistic space, Mind, Body and Soul sessions will offer an opportunity to centre our thoughts on our physical and mental well-being at Limmud Festival.
Entertain and be entertained – come along to Performance sessions to sing along to Jewish music from across the world, laugh at new jokes, and take part in music, dance and drama workshops.
Science and Technology
Explore the innovations in technology, medicine, business and science that help us engage with the world around us, and further our understanding of how they impact our modern Jewish lives.
Social programming is there to make sure you’re having plenty of fun and provide you with opportunities to meet new people. Whether you like a calm walk around Pendigo Lake, an afternoon of arts and crafts, a night of Open Mic or a dance at a disco, you’ll find something to help you unwind.
Torah and Philosophy
Delve into the sacred texts that form the bedrock of our religion and engage anew with the thoughts of generations of Sages and philosophers. This track aims not only to showcase the treasures of the religious Jewish tradition, but also to participate in it and enrich it with fresh, meaningful insights.
