Our Supporters

Our profound thanks to the community supporters who made our 2018 event possible. View the list. 

Now it's your turn! Please consider making a donation to Limmud Seattle 2019

Participant fees cover less than half our expenses (venue, food, marketing, etc.), so your support is essential. THANK YOU.

Three great reasons to donate right now:

1. We're Volunteer-run: Community support makes possible our learning festival and all the relationships, growth, empowerment and more that stem from it.

2. We Welcome All to Participate: Your contribution helps create an event celebrating Jewish unity and diversity.

3. All Who Want to Learn Can Come: Donations fund our “pay-as-able” model, so everyone can afford Limmud. For need-based pricing, contact support@limmudseattle.org. We'd love to hear from you.
