An open place for learning, providing participants with a diversity of topics and modes of learning about the Jewish and Israeli worlds. Limmud TLV provides an innovative and exciting platform from which all will be able to learn from others, be part of a community atmosphere and expand their horizons through a series of lectures, workshops, text-study sessions, film, meditation, discussions, exhibits and performance.

Limmud TLV aims to enable every participant to explore the Jewish and Israeli worlds – to create a space for dialogue and learning about our Jewish story that is as broad and open as possible. – We aim to ensure that there is something for everyone, no matter what your level of Jewish knowledge or how you practice your Judaism. We are bringing the Limmud experience to Tel Aviv –so that it is not only the Israeli capital of culture, business and creativity: It is also a meeting place for a range of ideas and people – like you – from across the Israeli-Jewish world.
Yes. Limmud TLV is a diverse cultural and learning experience for all. There is no connection between one’s level of religiosity or personal beliefs and their interest in expanding their Jewish horizons. Limmud TLV is open and welcoming to all and values all who wish to share and learn together.
Limmud TLV will be running over two days: 14th – 15th May.
We are also planning special Limmud TLV activities for the days before and after the event.

We are delighted that the Ruth Daniel Residence and Academic College of Tel Aviv-Yaffo in Jaffa will be hosting Limmud TLV. These wonderful venues have all of the facilities that we need in order to create a fantastic event. For details click here.
Limmud TLV is an experience accompanied by a special community atmosphere. Whilst registered participants are welcome to visit as few or as many sessions as they want (even in the same hour!), the experience just would not be the same if we allowed registration for single sessions. Not to mention the security and logistical nightmare that we would face if this was an option… We encourage participants to attend the entire event, but we understand that this will not always be possible (especially for those who cannot get the time off work), so we have an option for one-day registration. For details and to register, click here.
Sessions are planned to run from 9am until 10pm on Thursday and from 9am until 3pm on Friday. Every hour we will offer a selection of 10-15 diverse sessions from a huge variety of presenters. From Jewish meditation and yoga, to Jewish philosophy and history, Limmud TLV will have something for everyone.
The plan is to have sessions in Hebrew, English, French, Russian and more! For those presenting, please indicate the language of your session on your form.
Yes, if they are old or young enough to sit in on sessions. Unfortunately there will not be a program for children in the first year of Limmud TLV though we do hope to be able to expand and include a children’s Limmud experience in the future.
For sure. We welcome those who would like to join from outside Tel Aviv and will be launching Limmud Surf very soon. Limmud Surf will be run also by volunteers who have offered to host those coming from out of town in their homes for free in order that they may attend Limmud TLV.
A key value of Limmud is that no one is more important than anyone else. At Limmud, we are all part of a community and we all have a contribution to make. We are all students and we can all be teachers. On that basis, it just does not make sense for us to allow presenters or volunteers free entry. We do, however, recognize that those who present or volunteer are making a valuable contribution to Limmud TLV and as such we offer discounted rates for both.
You can view registration and payment options here. Please note that registration as a presenter or volunteer is subject to approval by the Limmud TLV team.
No. We encourage participants to attend the entire event, but we understand that this will not always be possible (especially for those who cannot get the time off work), so we have included an option to register for Thursday 5pm – Friday 2pm. See registration and payment options here.
