Our Mission

To celebrate Jewish life and learning in all of its diversity by bringing together Jews of all backgrounds and all ages for learning experiences. We are driven by the belief that diversity of perspective, dedication to learning in its broadest sense, and a strong sense of volunteerism are keys to mobilizing and inspiring Jewish individuals and community.


Learning: To nurture and support people in their Jewish discoveries, providing them with informal mentoring and educational experiences.

Diversity: To provide a wide variety of Jews with numerous points of connection to Jewish life, including intellectual, spiritual, emotional, familial, and communal.

Volunteerism: To foster a strong volunteer corps who, through planning and participating in our events, experience the power of volunteerism by building Jewish identity and community.

Core Values

Learning: We foster the creation of a learning environment in which people are able to reflect and grow — a place where everyone can be a teacher and everyone can be a student.

Community and Mutual Responsibility: Limmud is a learning community in which we can achieve more together than we can individually.

Diversity: We believe in the richness of our diverse community and strive to create inclusive and cross-generational experiences.

Empowerment: We inspire people to be ambitious about their contributions; we challenge people to push themselves toward their potential; we empower people to make informed choices.

Participation: We are all responsible for each other and for the community we create — everyone has an important contribution to make, and volunteerism is an essential feature of everything we do.

Fostering Connections: We recognize the importance of providing a space where emotional and intellectual connections can be made.

Expanding Jewish Horizons: Limmud strives to create collective and individual experiences through which we strengthen and develop our Jewish identities.
