Southern Hospitality

Southern Hospitality, Limmud-Style!

LimmudFest’s welcoming atmosphere extends past the doors of Gates of Prayer and Tulane by offering home hospitality for all who want it. We strive to receive all of our participants with particularly warm, sweet, and welcoming goodwill for the entire weekend. New Orleans Hospitality is renowned, and we have put together multiple options for out-of-town guests of LimmudFest 2016.

If you are Shomer Shabbat and want to be placed in a host house near our Shabbat venue, Congregation Gates of Prayer, we have hosts ready to welcome you. Even if you are not Shomer but would prefer to stay with a local family to save money or just to meet some new friends, Home hospitality is a excellent and convenient way to do both. And for you local New Orleanians, we have heard time and again from past attendees: one of the most satisfying ways you can participate in LimmudFest is to offer home hospitality.

If you prefer a hotel, we have reserved a block of rooms at the Marriott in Metairie, a 1.5 mile walk from Gates of Prayer, our Shabbat venue. No matter what accommodations you choose, we can’t wait for you to experience what Limmud New Orleans has to offer!

LimmudFest New Orleans is a weekend festival of Big Tent Jewish learning, arts, culture and spirituality — all planned by volunteers. It is part of a global movement inspired by the idea that when Jews from diverse backgrounds come together to celebrate and learn about everything Jewish, the entire community is enriched.
