Be inspired. Be entertained. Be Jewish.


Perhaps one of the best known Federation programs is its annual Yom Limmud or Jewish Day of LearningYom Limmud provides a unique opportunity for Jews from all denominations and walks of life to come together in one place at one time to learn, exchange ideas, and share experiences. Scores of seminars featuring presentations by rabbis, cantors, Jewish educators, college professors, cultural arts specialists and other experts are facilitated throughout the day. The event also provides special programming for teachers.


Yom Limmud 2020 will take place on Sunday, February 16, 2020 at Congregation Beth Israel, 5600 N. Braeswood


Yom Limmud is generously underwritten by

the Barish Family and The Chair King.

    Four Houston area congregations will each host a Scholar-in-Residence for the Shabbat preceding Yom Limmud, a program made possible by the Barish Family and The Chair King. Each of the scholars will also present at least one session at Yom Limmud.


    As you might imagine, many volunteers providing diverse services are needed in order to make Yom Limmud 2019 as great a success as it has been in the past. We hope you will join us as an active member of the Yom Limmud team!
