Today, thirty years after its beginning, Limmud has expanded around the globe with the past few months witnessing a number of events in addition to Limmud Fest in the U.K., Limmud in Modiin (Israel) and Limmud FSU in Jerusalem and New York that were previously written about in eJewish Philanthropy. Limmud Oz Melbourne, Paris Day Limmud – Limoud France, Limmud Buenos Aires Argentina and Limmud SA Cape Town are covered with the help of Limmud volunteers around the world.
