Have no idea what Limmud is?
Limmud is a Festival of Jewish culture that contains all of the following:
- Panels, interview, discussions and lectures on pretty much every topic imaginable. Why? Because the attendees provide the content.
- A nightly plethora of live music, comedy, games, quizzes, and DJ-sets. There is also live-band karaoke, interactive singalongs and film screenings.
- Food and drink making (and obviously tasting).
- Opportunities to relax and socialise in-between all the learning!
- A really well stocked and affordable bar.
I heard Limmud is expensive. What are my options?
Limmud aims to make its events financially accessible so that anyone who wishes to participate can do so.
Prices for a shared room start at £449, and you can reduce that by:
- Volunteering as a Festival Maker to receive 50% discount on your fee
- Applying confidentially for a bursary
- Paying through instalments to spread the costs of attendance
- Opting for short-stay and joining us from Sunday 25 to Wednesday 28 December
- Booking a non-residential place.
Volunteer as a Festival Maker, and receive a 50% discount on your fee. You will volunteer for a max of 4 hours per day. In addition to your discount, we will provide you with opportunities for meet-ups, social events and exclusive extras throughout the event, whilst also having plenty of time to explore the wider programme. It’s a great way to meet people and feel part of the community who make Limmud. See the Volunteering page for more details.
Madrichim/ot are youth leaders who work as a team to ensure each child at Young and Teen Limmud (YTL) has a fantastic experience in a safe and inclusive environment. It’s an amazing way for you to experience Limmud Festival- you’ll receive a heavily subsidised place, a shared room in the Hilton for the entirety of Festival (including Shabbat) and an opportunity to make life-long friends and gain excellent experience in working with children.
After receiving full training, which will provide you with transferable skills and a supportive team, you are tasked with writing and running your own sessions that can be about anything- they range from science to Israeli politics, and music to volunteering. Madrichim also assist experienced presenters in running their sessions. At night, you are free to enjoy main Limmud Festival at your leisure. You need to be available for our YTL weekend retreat, which takes place in November, and for the entirety of Festival. This option is open to anyone aged 17+. If you enjoy working with children, work well in a team and are interested in attending Limmud Festival 2022 as a Madrich/a or Rosh in YTL, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have time constraints you can come from either Sunday to Wednesday, or book a non-residential place.
