Frequently Asked Questions

Who is Limmud Seattle for?


Limmud Seattle is for everyone interested in an engaging Jewish learning and cultural experience. It is open to people of all backgrounds and invites Jews of different ages and affiliations, or no affiliation at all, to explore values, share culture, discuss Jewish topics, and discover new ways of expressing their identities.

Who will present at Limmud Seattle?


At Limmud, everyone should be a student and anyone can be a teacher. Part of the fun is seeing yourself or a friend on our roster alongside world renowned folks flying in to join our event. Presenters are rabbis and professional educators; experts in their field; and knowledgeable attendees passionate about sharing their interest. Check out our growing list of presenters here.

Anyone can submit a session proposal, to be vetted and selected by the Programming Team. This inclusive process is fundamental to Limmud and a reason for its wide appeal. More info on this and registration coming soon! Sign up for updates on the home page.

How many people are expected?


In our first year, we aim to attract 450 attendees that reflect the amazing vibrancy and diversity of the Seattle Jewish community - affiliated and unaffiliated.
