Limmud aims to enable every participant to take one step further on their Jewish journey. Limmud is a community of learning. We believe we can achieve more together than we can individually.
Limmud SA’s values and principles:
Learning embraces personal development, knowledge, skills and growth. It changes people, inspires action and opens new worlds Everyone can be a teacher and everyone should be a student.
Expanding Jewish Horizons
Limmud strives to create collective and communal experiences, through which we strengthen and develop our Jewish identity
We inspire people to be ambitious about their contribution and make informed choices. We aim to support their development
Volunteerism is a key feature of almost everything we do. We are all responsible for each other and for the communities we create, and everyone has an important contribution to make
We value diversity in all that we do; in content, form and style. We aim to create accessible, cross-communal and cross-generational experiences
Enabling connections to be made
We aim to create opportunities for communities and individuals to connect. We recognise the strength of providing a space where spiritual, emotional and intellectual connections are made
Commitment to Respect
Limmud expects all participants to be respectful of one another, and to recognise that all volunteers are also participants.
Arguments for the Sake of Heaven
Limmud does not participate in legitimising or de-legitimising any religious or political position. We do however realise that ‘arguments for the sake of heaven’ can make a positive contribution. Sessions should be educational and not polemical.
Shabbat and kashrut are observed in all public areas so that people do not have to separate from one another. In private areas people will behave as they wish
