The Sights and Sounds of Limmud FSU Be’er Sheva

At any Limmud FSU event, be it in Israel, Russia, Ukraine or the U.S., one thing you can be certain of is a potpourri of sessions focused around Jewish culture, Jewish education and Jewish knowledge. You can also count on a memorable opening evening program. Last week’s Limmud FSU in Be’er Sheva didn’t disappoint in either content or entertainment. Here are some highlights:
