Limmud comes to Jerusalem

The Limmud International Jewish learning organization held one of its renowned conventions over two days on Thursday and Friday in Jerusalem, and included a plethora of panel discussions, presentations and workshops from a diverse list of speakers on subjects ranging from Jewish food and culture to female Jewish spiritual leadership, and peace building, to rabbinical power.

Among just some of the speakers and presenters were MK Aliza Lavie of the Yesh Atid party; Mutassim Ali, a refugee from Darfur leading the struggle for political asylum; Iris Yaniv, a secular humanist rabbi; Ephraim Tziyon-Lavai, a keis (Ethiopian Jewish religious leader); comedian Yisrael Campbell; and The Jerusalem Post’s Lahav Harkov who presented a model Knesset workshop.
