Yom Limmud is a rich and varied one-day Limmud event, being held on 18 June 2017 at Glen Eira Town Hall from 11am to 7pm.
Limmud Oz alternates its large events between Melbourne and Sydney each year, and in 2017, Limmud Oz Sydney is running a full 2 day event. Melbourne’s Yom Limmud does not invite proposals for sessions from the community but provides a shorter curated program, taking advantage of the generosity of international presenters willing to come from Sydney for the day, as well as local talent. Yom Limmud is nevertheless still centred on the core Limmud philosophy of diversity – with a choice of sessions offered in all time slots except the final musical session which is beautifully diverse in itself.
All Limmud events are immersion events and registration is not offered for individual sessions. This enhances the experience of participants and supports the Limmud philosophy that all sessions are given an equal platform.
The full Limmud Oz event will be back in June 2018, and submissions for sessions will be opened in March 2018.
The program for Yom Limmud 2017 includes sessions on Israel & the middle east, text-based learning, musical performances and personal reflections. The full program is now available here.
Kosher food will be sold on site, and there will be a coffee cart throughout the day.
Yom Limmud, like all Limmud Oz Melbourne events, is run entirely by volunteers from beginning to end, and all organisers and presenters take part on the basis of Limmud’s philosophies of volunteering and participation. If presenters are Limmud’s soul, volunteers are its body, doing everything necessary to deliver this complex and wonderful event, and we thank all the volunteers who made it happen.
