What is Limmud Conference?
It brings together around 3,000 people of all ages and from across the globe, offering something for everyone – whether you want to debate burning contemporary issues, jam with a band, study Torah, create art, or just renew old friendships and build new ones too. See the website for information on this year’s programme and presenters. There are many choices of activity each day. The lakeside area offers the chance for a walk outside too..
Limmud believes that everyone can be a presenter and everyone should be an active participant. The organisers say: “Join us at Limmud Conference 2017, not just to take part, but to actively take one step further on your Jewish journey with the global Limmud community.”
Second Generation at Limmud Conference
For the last few years, Second Generation Network has offered discussion group sessions at Limmud Conference, aimed at members of the Second and Third Generations. At Conference 2016, one group was attended by 30 people!
Barbara Dresner and Leah Burman will be facilitating a group this year entitled Being Second or Third Generation, what does that mean to you? on Tuesday at 6:50-7:50pm.
Perhaps we’ll see you there …
Barbara and Leah are also facilitating a group at Manchester Limmud in 2018.
