Join the team

Yes, we would love your help!

Volunteerism is a central tenet of Limmud. Not only Presenters are volunteers – the whole Festival is volunteer-run and volunteer-driven. We welcome you to join us. There are all kinds of roles available, from a few hours helping at the event to core roles as organizers and leaders – there is bound to be something for you.
