I’ve previously written about Limmud NY here and here. I’ve written about Limmud Philly here. And here at Jewschool, we also had a recent post about Limmud Boston, which is just getting started. Limmud started in the UK and is pretty much everywhere these days.
Limmud NY is an aggressively diverse community of volunteers (and four staffers, of which I’m one) bent on bringing together the most diverse group of Jews to learn from and teach each other one long weekend a year. Registration is open now for our sixth annual conference over MLK weekend.
But before that, you can get a little Taste of Limmud NY at our evening-long event on the Upper West Side next week. There’ll be learning, teaching, shmoozing, eating, Jewing, etc.
