When and where did your Limmud journey begin?

“ I first encountered Limmud in Berlin, my home town. It was such an inspiring experience that I have volunteered at different Limmuds in Europe ever since and was part of the Limmud organising teams in Berlin and Strasbourg, where I currently live. ”

How would you explain what Limmud is to someone who has never heard of it?

“ Limmud offers a unique opportunity for self organised learning beyond established authorities. It inspires you to actively engage with the diversity of Jewish ideas, traditions and people. It allows you to leave your comfort zone, to challenge yourself and to encounter different Jewish experiences. ”

What excites you about being part of LEV?

“ At the heart of LEV are conversations. We talk about the values that are important to us and Jewish communities across Europe, esp. in light of the pandemic, rising populism and climate change. I cherish LEV's openness and willingness to take a fresh look at long-held values and to explore what makes them meaningful to us in the 21st century. ”
