Limmud Cape Town reaches new heights

“There is simply no other space like Limmud in South Africa. It leaves me Jewishly inspired, refreshed and ready to do more for this community.”

This message from a community member reflects the power of  Limmud. For those who have never attended a Limmud conference, it is hard to describe just what Limmud is.   Part conference, part inclusive Jewish concept and part festival of Jewish learning – Limmud Cape Town 2016 was arguably the best in the 10 year history of Limmud in South Africa.

On August 19-21, 550 delegates of all ages packed into the beautiful Protea Hotel Stellenbosch and were treated to 117 scintillating sessions presented by 20 world-renowned international, and 68 local, academics, artists and thought-leaders. A highlight of the 2016 conference was ‘Limmud Live’ on Saturday night – a masterful showcase of talent, featuring Israeli/American comedian Benji Lovitt, American spoken word artist Caroline Rothstein, and SA musician and community member, Aron Turest-Swartz (who also curated the event).

Make sure to catch Limmud CT next year – taking place August 11-13, 2017.
