What is Limmud?
In Hebrew, “Limmud” means “learning” – and that’s what it’s all about. We are a community that creates a time and a place where you can craft your own Jewish experience, explore your connection to Jewish ideas and traditions, and meet people who share your curiosity and enthusiasm.
Limmud Toronto is a one of a kind festival experience celebrating all of the richness that Jewish identity can offer.
At Limmud Toronto, you can expect passionate Presenters from a diversity of backgrounds, religious observance, community involvement, political stances and cultural beliefs.
