On this page, we have put together information that may be used by partners and media outlets interested in covering Limmud Toronto.
Limmud Toronto is an innovative, inclusive festival of Jewish learning that brings people of all backgrounds together to celebrate the rich diversity of Jewish culture and heritage.
Limmud Toronto is based on the Limmud model of cross-communal Jewish learning and grassroots volunteering that has inspired others throughout the world. Today there are more than 90 Limmud groups in 44 countries, in English, Hebrew, Russian, French and Spanish, with more being added every year. For more information about Limmud worldwide visit Limmud International.
Although certain speakers were invited ahead of time, most applied to present during our open call period. In selecting the presenters, the programming team ensured that there was a wide range of views and opinions represented throughout the day. This included both leftwing and rightwing voices as well as secular and religious. The only requirement for the presenters is that their presentations must contain some type of Jewish connection.
The presentations are divided into 11 tracks: Arts Media Literature, Ethics & Social Justice, Identity, Israel, Jewish History & Holocaust, Jewish Life, Jewish Texts, Panel Discussions, Philosophy & Thought, Spirituality & Health and Woman’s Issues. These tracks allow attendees to either choose presentations that are connected by a certain theme or mix and match as they like.
During the lunch hour, attendees receive a kosher lunch which was included with their cost of admission. The lunch hour will also feature a live Klezmer band.
This year is the first time that Limmud Toronto will be followed by an after party.
