“We loved being in the land of the long white cloud.. and being at Limmud was like being immersed deeply in the land of learning.
For a weekend , the world outside receded and we revelled in such a rich and diverse programme which was also distinguished by its heimish feel.
We loved the idea of the communal eating and the breaks between sessions which allowed for intermingling and more conversations and as outsiders from OZ we felt very welcomed.
A particular highlight was the havadalah service and the involvement of youth groups, which really reinforced the a senses of total community engagement.
The committee is to be commended for delivering a world class festival that was scholarly, accessible and entertaining.
We have told our friends it’s a must do and we’ll be back.”
