Limmud Chavruta: God's Time

EJ Cohen, Karen Radkowsky

Chavruta, Text & Thought

In this interactive session, we will explore our relationship to God and time in this world. Can we own time, or does it belong to God? Can we control it, or does it control us? Ancient sources, modern scholarship, song lyrics and more will be used. Everyone is welcome, whether you have studied texts before or not, and knowledge of Hebrew is not required.

Bringing Limmud to Your Community

Getting Started

How-To

Since its founding in Britain 30 years ago, Limmud has grown into a global movement reaching over 50 communities on 6 continents. This orientation session is designed specifically for those exploring the feasibility of creating a Limmud conference in another community outside the NYC area. Topics include the core principles of Limmud, an overview of the organizational structure, and key questions to be asking as you are deciding whether to move forward.

Limmud Chavruta: My Time

EJ Cohen, Karen Radkowsky

Chavruta, Text & Thought

In this interactive session, we will explore the concept of personal time: How do we spend our time? Should we be studying? Praying? Helping others? Looking after ourselves? All of the above? What does 'personal time' mean? Ancient sources, modern scholarship, song lyrics and more will be used. Everyone is welcome, whether you have studied texts before or not, and knowledge of Hebrew is not required.

Limmud Chavruta: Our Time

EJ Cohen, Karen Radkowsky

Chavruta, Text & Thought

In this interactive session, we will explore the concept of communal time: our connections to Jewish and Secular calendars, and their impact on our lives. How important are they for the cohesion and survival of communities? Ancient sources, modern scholarship, song lyrics and more will be used. Everyone is welcome, whether you have studied texts before or not, and knowledge of Hebrew is not required.

Limmud North America Regional Networking

How-To

This session is designed as a forum for delegates from the 10 Limmuds across the US and Canada to exchange ideas and build relationships. Together we will brainstorm about how we can begin to work collectively to maximize our human and financial resources, advise and support one other, and assist fledgling Limmud groups in North America.

Limmud Chavruta: All Time

EJ Cohen, Karen Radkowsky

Chavruta, Text & Thought

In this interactive session, we will explore our relationship to time, asking such questions as: Is time preordained? What do we remember? Is time 'progress'? Is the Messiah late? Can we time travel? We will examine ancient sources, modern scholarship, song lyrics, and more will be utilized. Everyone is welcome, whether you have studied texts before or not, and knowledge of Hebrew is not required.
