Limmud Oz 2018

Limmud Oz is returning to Melbourne in 2018. Our 3-day content-rich event will be held on 9-11 June 2018.

Limmud Oz alternates its large events between Melbourne and Sydney each year, and in 2018, Limmud Oz Sydney is running a 1-day Yom Limmud event on 17 June 2018.

Limmud Oz is centred on a core Limmud philosophy of diversity – with a choice of sessions offered in all time slots.

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 program for Limmud Oz 2018 will include sessions on Israel & the middle east, the Jewish world, Jewish history, text-based learning, musical performances and personal reflections. Presenter registration is now closed, so we can allocate the overwhelming number of sessions that have been offered. The full 2018 program will be published in early May.

Food at Yom Limmud

Kosher food will be sold on site, and there will be a coffee cart throughout Sunday and Monday.

Limmud volunteers

Limmud Oz Melbourne is run almost 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 make it happen. If you would like to get involved, contact us.
