What is Limmud?

Limmud.de is a place…

  • where Jews of all religious and political backgrounds meet to learn, discuss and celebrate together,
  • where you can expect to meet Jews who are different from you,
  • where you can learn something new, whether you know nothing about Judaism yet, or you are a rabbi or professor,
  • where participants themselves decide what they want to learn, and what they want to teach,
  • where you can offer a presentation on any Jewish theme in which you have some expertise,
  • where you can attend or offer workshops in German, English or Russian,
  • where there is room for the broad diversity of Jewish topics: religion, tradition, politics, society, literature, art, music and more,
  • where everyone from the age of 0 to 120 is welcome.

Limmud.de is an official non-profit organization – donations are tax deductible.

Limmud is created by volunteers. But Limmud needs funds, too – for office material, printing costs, travel expenses for some far-flung participants, and much more. We would be grateful for your help; and donations are tax deductible, because Limmud.de was founded as a registered association,  Limmud e.V., and is recognized as a non-profit by the Berlin Tax Authority for Corporations.

Limmud International

The first Limmud conference was held in Great Britain nearly 30 years ago. Since then, there have been many other Limmud festivals around the world. For more information, see Limmud International.
