WHAT IS LIMMUD CHINA?
Limmud China is a festival of Jewish learning organized by Jews in East Asia for other Jews in the region and from around the globe. Over the course of the weekend, we will hear from engaging regional speakers; dance to Jewish music; celebrate Shabbat; and learn from each other. We welcome everyone and strive to give a voice to Jews from different backgrounds in order to celebrate Jewish life in all its fullness.
Limmud is a global community which came to life 30 years ago in the UK, when a group of Jews got together for a retreat powered by learning through lectures, films, discussions, and workshops. This first event inspired other Jewish communities, and there are now over 80 Limmud events held in over 40 countries around the world.
Limmud is an independent organization with no affiliation to any denominational movement or Jewish institutional organization, and is run almost entirely by volunteers.
