  • To enhance the skills of participants to develop Jewish programming upon their return to their communities

Every morning at Limmud, Matara participants will attend sessions delivered by Steve Israel and Sonja Vilicic. After lunch, participants are encouraged to choose from any of the general Limmud lectures or activities they are interested in throught the rest of the day.

The Rothschild Foundation (Hanadiv) Europe will be sponsoring 20 places for young Jewish educators and community activists to attend the December 2013 Limmud Conference in the UK.
