Who We Are
In Hebrew, “Limmud” means “learning” – and that’s what it’s all about. We are a community that creates spaces and places so you can craft your own Jewish experience, explore your connection to Jewish ideas and traditions and meet people who share your curiosity and enthusiasm.
LimmudBoston is a one of a kind festival celebrating all of the richness that Jewish identity can offer. Limmud Boston is a volunteer-driven, independent, pan-denominational organization dedicated to the creation of engaging opportunities to experience and celebrate Jewish learning and culture.
