Families 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. If you have any questions about coming to Festival as a family, please click here to get in touch with our Limmud Office.
We know this year Families at Festival will feel different in a no-physical gathering, but our team are working hard to put together an exciting programme full of storytellings, creative activities, music, text study, kef (fun) and more – helping to build those memories that will create Limmudniks for generations to come!
Young & Teen Limmud (YTL)
Our YTL team are excited to share the layout and programme for this year’s Festival, when registration opens, catering for children aged 8–11 (Young Limmud) and 12–17 (Teen Limmud). The Peulot (activities) will lead by their Madrichim/ot (leaders) who have been specially trained for this role.
Teen Limmud aims to inspire the next generation of Limmud by focusing on leadership and other important skills whilst having loads of fun along the way. Teen Limmud allows older participants freedom to split their time between YTL and Main Festival.
YTL is run entirely by volunteer Madrichim/ot from a range of diverse backgrounds and supported by the Welfare Chairs, Live and Logistics Chairs and YTL co-chairs.
Joining the YTL team as a Madrich/a
Want to gain experience in working with children in an incredible environment with a supportive network? Join the YTL team as a Madrich/a (leader).
Whether you’re a YTL veteran, or new to Limmud, being part of the YTL team is a fantastic way to experience this week-long explosion of Judaism.
We’re making an extra effort to ensure Festival is a safe and inclusive environment where everyone is free to make the most of their Festival experience as they wish. We have a team of volunteers responsible for ensuring Limmud Festival is inclusive for everyone.

Limmud is a three day Festival of Jewish culture that contains all of the following:
- Panels, discussions and lectures on literally any topic you want. Why? Because the attendees provide the content. You have a platform – use it.
- Skills building workshops.
- A nightly plethora of live music, comedy, games, quizzes, and DJs – even virutally!
