About Limmud

Wherever you find yourself, Limmud Bay Area will take you one step further along your Jewish journey.

A retreat in a Jewish space and time, open, inclusive and multi-generational, Limmud Bay Area Festival brings the community together for an enriching and immersive annual experience.

Our mission is informed by principles and values shared with the over 80 Limmud groups across the world.

Pluralism is key: The events don’t favor one way of Jewish life, thinking or belief over any other, and the diversity is striking. You might find yourself at a Limmud debating Talmud or Israeli hip-hop lyrics with a college-age Chabadnik, a Sunday school teacher and an “Orthodyke” activist. J. Weekly Editorial, 2011
