- Limmud Bay Area is a gathering of Jews from all parts of the San Francisco Bay, from all walks of life, all Jewish backgrounds, all lifestyles, and all ages. A series of workshops, discussions, nature walks, text study, art projects, performances and much more, in a retreat like setting – is uniquely planned, produced and enjoyed by a network of “volunticipators”. At the center of Limmud is a key but often overlooked attribute of Jewish learning: that everyone can be a teacher and everyone must be a learner. In Hebrew, Limmud means learning and that’s what it’s about. An invitation to open yourself to Jewish experiences you’ve never imagined. An opportunity to explore your connection to Jewish ideas, innovations and tradition. Meet people who share your curiosity and fundamental commitment. Relax, reflect, and celebrate.
