Over a thousand Jews of nearly all ages and backgrounds will be coming to Limmud NY in Ellenville, NY in the Catskills between Jan. 15-19 to partake in a mega Jewish learning experience. They will be able to choose from over 300 sessions - up to 15 concurrently – including lectures, hands-on workshops, text study, crafts, music, film, yoga, nature walks, a wide variety of Shabbat services, and more.


The limmud presentations range from Talmud to psychology, from film to Bible, from drama to Israeli politics. Some sessions will be given by renowned lecturers; others will be discussion groups, artist circles, or workshops. Some will be small; others will be events for the entire Limmud community.


Among the planned Limmud NY sessions:


  • Israel’s Security in 2009 with Uzi Dayan
  • A Land Twice Promised: A One-Woman Show with Noa Baum
  • Russian-Jewish Film Series with Olga Gershenson
  • Desperately Seeking Seeger: Folk Songs That Illuminate Jewish Values with Daniel Nichols
  • Sephardim and Ashkenazim: What We Should be Learning from Each Other with Rabbi Marc Angel
  • Jewish Nature Walk with Getzel Davis
