Schedule and Full Lineup Is Out!

The complete schedule for Limmud New Orleans 2016 is now online! Check out when and where your favorite sessions will be taking place. There will be more than 90 learning sessions offered to you by more than 80 presenters at the upcoming three-day festival of Jewish culture and learning.

The lineup of sessions cover a wide variety of interesting topics covering Arts & Culture, Contemporary Jewish Life, Family, Food, Hands-On Workshops, History, Israel, Social Justice, Southern Jewish Life, Spirituality, Text & Thought, and Young Limmud. The “un-conference” style learning environment allows you to choose your own path throughout the weekend.

But that’s not all. A line-up of quality children’s programming allows parents can go learn in their own sessions, confident that their children will also be experiencing the magic of Limmud. Multi-denominational Shabbat services will be held for children on Shabbat morning, and babysitting will be available throughout the weekend. Plus all food at LimmudFest will be kosher under strict rabbinical supervision, and all meals and snacks are included in the registration fee.

There is still time to register! Both 3-Day Passes and Sunday + tickets are still available, and there is special pricing for young adults and children.

It’s All About Choice

LimmudFest offers programming for people of all ages and levels of experience with Jewish learning, whether you are a native New Orleanian, a newcomer, or from outside the area. Wherever you are on your Jewish journey, LimmudFest can take you one step further.

LimmudFest is all about choice. There will be multiple sessions (at some times as many as nine) going on simultaneously. You do not sign up for sessions ahead of time, but just decide what to attend based on your interests and feedback from fellow Limmudniks. LimmudFest is a time to explore, so we encourage you to go outside your comfort zone and sample a bit of everything.

A Family Experience

Wherever you find yourself – and whatever age you are – Limmud will take you one step further on your Jewish journey. With this in mind, we are putting together an excellent line-up of quality children’s programming so there is something for the entire family. Parents can go learn in their own sessions, confident that their children will also be experiencing the magic of Limmud.

Multi-denominational Shabbat services will be held for children on Shabbat morning, and babysitting will be available throughout the weekend. A full roster of fun and educational activities designed specifically with young children in mind will allow attendees of all ages to learn and grow along with the adults. The entire weekend of learning and teaching is designed with the entire family in mind.

LimmudFest New Orleans is a celebration of Jewish culture, thought, the arts, learning, and teaching, and so much more — 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.
