Limmud's core values
Limmud’s mission is to allow each Jew to take one step forward on his or her Jewish journey. Limmud seeks to create a space in which all Jews can explore the various facets of Jewish culture and their Jewish identity. Limmud is a diverse and inclusive forum in which you will experience the full gamut of Jewish opinions and beliefs.
Learning: We believe that every Jew should be a student and that any Jew can be a teacher. We welcome individual participation at Limmud events. Participants come as individuals, not as members of an organization.
Expanding Jewish horizons: We strive to present and learn about new aspects and interpretations of Judaism, and we believe that this process may strengthen our Jewish identity as well.
Community and mutual responsibility: We strive to create a community based on mutual responsibility for the others, and on real interest about different Jewish interpretations.
Commitment to respect: We expect our participants to act respectfully toward each other, including to all volunteers. We are committed to treating all of our participants, and all sessions presented, with equal respect. No participant is more important than any other.
