A catalogue of countless simultaneous sessions offers a range of topics from early in the morning until late each night. Some sessions are hands-on art workshops; some involve dance or yoga; others are lectures or traditional bet midrash style text study. Some sessions are tiny; others involve the entire Limmud community.
The possibilities are as broad as Jewish life itself; Biblical poetry to Jewish motifs in science fiction; from variant manuscripts of ancient texts to Israeli film; from Bibliodrama to Jewish hip-hop. Texts are studied intensively, songs are learned, languages and history explored, politics debated, courses of social action plotted. There are many ‘tracks’ one can follow throughout the conference or none at all. A Limmud experience lets you choose what to learn.
