Sunday 27 February 2000

N.B. Bookings have now closed. It may be possible to admit some further participants at the door, but if so:

  • The full registration fee will be charged even though lunches cannot be provided;

  • Registrations of those who have been pre-booked will be given priority; those seeking entry at the door may have to wait until this is completed;

  • Adequate personal identification will be required.

We have planned a stimulating day with a large choice of sessions in the style that has become Limmud's hallmark. This is also an opportunity for those who have not been able to get to the national conference, to taste the Limmud way of exploring Judaism. The non-sectarian, non-confrontational environment lets the full essence of our rich religion come to the fore.

Local, National and International Jewish Educators will be joining us to help you to discover new insights into a range of topics. We have nine tracks that you can choose from (Arts, Ideas, Identity & Renewal, International, Israel & History, Mancunians, Mysticism, Texts, Youth, Plenary: click here for further details), either staying on one throughout the day or dipping in and out.
