See our program below. 

We are proud to welcome an outstanding group of presenters who will teach and learn at the festival. Amongst them you’ll meet the Pardes-Kevah teacher fellows whose fellowship will culminate at the festival with 9 fabulous sessions!

[At Limmud] everyone is a student, even the lecturers. As such, everyone is considered to be equal. Lecturers don’t just come and go to speak at their assigned time slot. They are strongly encouraged to learn themselves and to interact with other participants. —Ron Arons, Oakland-based author
