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 2018 will take place on Sunday, February 18, 2018 at Congregation Emanu El, 1500 Sunset Blvd., in the Rice University area.
