We are grateful for the broad support that Limmud values and goals have inspired. Below are our event sponsors, scholarship supporters, individual donors and community partners.

Participant fees cover less than half of our actual expenses (venue, food, marketing, etc.), so this financial backing is essential. THANK YOU.

To join this fast-growing list of supporters, please donate today (three reasons why are below). Every gift is important. Donors will also appear in the Limmud Seattle program booklet.
