FESTIVAL SHABBAT: FRIDAY 23 – SATURDAY 24 DECEMBER 2022
Every Limmud Festival starts with Shabbat. Even when we’re online, we begin the event as a community bringing in Shabbat and marking Havdallah together before the main event.
The Festival Shabbat programme often includes challah making and other activities to prepare for shabbat, Kabbalat Shabbat singing and prayer spaces, and of course a communal havdallah.
In line with Limmud’s value of religious observance, Limmud keeps halachic shabbat at all its events. Therefore, all Shabbat programming is according to halachic practice. When Limmud events take place online all Shabbat programming takes place before and after Shabbat (usually using London timings) and no online programming takes place during Shabbat.
