Limmud is the Hebrew word for learning. Limmud SA is a community of learning where South African Jews can learn and share ideas, regardless of their affiliations or levels of Jewish knowledge.

Limmud is organised almost entirely by teams of volunteers. We believe there is space for everyone to contribute in their own unique way.
