Yes, we would love your help!

Volunteerism is a central tenet of Limmud. Not only Presenters are volunteers – the whole Festival is volunteer-run and volunteer-driven. We welcome you to join us. There are all kinds of roles available, from a few hours helping at the event to core roles as organizers and leaders – there is bound to be something for you.

Day-of Support Team

  • Helping with set-up
  • Meeting and greeting participants
  • Registration/customer service

Before the event

  • Printing badges

  • Organizing lists

We will ask you which role and shift you are interested in – we will accommodate as best we can but we do ask for flexibility.

For the day-long event we do our best to schedule volunteers for no more than 3 hours, so that all volunteers have at least half of the day to enjoy Limmud programming.
