Limmud is a Jewish festival of culture and learning where Jews can learn and share ideas, regardless of their affiliations or levels of Jewish knowledge. Limmud means “learning” in Hebrew, and it has one goal: to take you one step further on your own Jewish journey.
Limmud is a global phenomenon which offers amazing opportunities for Jewish engagement. Founded in the UK in 1980, there are now 87 communities in 43 countries around the world, from Bulgaria to Brazil, from Cape Town to California, from Modiin to Moscow, from New Zealand to New York - and now Seattle - that organize Limmud conferences.
The success of Limmud relies on a spirit of volunteerism and participation. In 2015, around the world 33,000 people participated in Limmud events created by 3,000 volunteers. Be on one of our teams, help on the day of the event, or work on individual projects over the next few months. We invite you to get involved in helping create the Limmud Seattle experience.
