Limmud NY will make you smarter and more attractive

OK. So maybe the title is a bit of an exaggeration, but Limmud NY is pretty damn great.

It’s an annual gathering of hundreds of Jews of every age (tots to college students to twentysomethings to ¬†families to retirees) and background (Orthodox to Renewal to non/post/trans-denominational to Conservative to Reform to secular to whatever the hell else you call yourself).

We’re there to learn, sing, hang out, drink, teach and bask in the glory of the broadest definition of Torah you can conjure up.

This year it’s MLK weekend: Jan. 14-17. And it’s at the Hudson Valley Resort in the Catskills.

At Limmud NY, everything is volunteer-run and everyone is a learner and a teacher.

You can register here. Fees go up after December 16. And there’s always scholarship money available, so don’t be discouraged by prices.

And you can check out some of this year’s confirmed presenters here.

Here’s everything I’ve ever written about Limmud NY.

    This single childless thirty-one-year-old objects to your categorisation of humanity.

      It was not meant as a complete list of examples, but as a set of examples representative of a significantly larger range of possibilities. For instance, if I were to say that our sessions cover every topic from A to Z, you would see that I didn’t mean that our sessions cover A and Z, but that they cover everything else in between as well.

      But I appreciate your comment because I tend to complain a lot of about the set of denominational labels treated as comprehensive.

    This is one of the few times when I wish that I was still a New Yorker…

      I wish you were too! AHA should pay for y’all to come up for this…

      BTW, the closest Limmud to y’all that I can think of is probably Limmud Atl+SE, which actually has two events every year. They do an annual conference in the spring and LimmudFest, which they do at a camp during the summer.
