Be inspired. Be entertained. Be Jewish.


Perhaps one of the best known Federation programs is its annual Yom Limmud or Jewish Day of Learning


Yom 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.


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

    With more than 90 sessions, there is truly something for everyone at Yom Limmud. Participants can plan their day by selecting the sessions that most interest them.


    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.


    In order to make Yom Limmud 2020 as great a success as it has been in the past, volunteers are needed to provide an array of services. We hope you will join us as an active member of the Yom Limmud team! Contact us if you'd like to help.
