The city of Lviv in Western Ukraine welcomed this weekend an influx of over 750 (mostly) young participants to a Limmud FSU conference. The opening was addressed by the Mayor of Lviv, Andrei Sudovey, who welcomed the Jewish participants to what was historically a major Jewish city and by Eliav Belotserkovsky, the Israeli ambassador in Ukraine. Lviv is in itself both a microcosm of Jewish history for better or worse (usually worse) and a small resurgent modern community, reborn on the ashes of the past. So it is to Lviv that Limmud has arrived. Three hotels had been taken over in their entirety and during the three-day pluralistic, egalitarian conference, which, like all Limmud FSU events, is entirely planned and run by young local volunteers.
