· Chana Rothman, a multi-talented singer/songwriter who will bring her ska-infused musical stylings to our Saturday night community Havdalah concert;
· JTA correspondent Sue Fishkoff, discussing and reading from her book “Kosher Nation” which explores the changing attitudes of what “kosher” means for Jews in the 21st century;
· Documentary filmmaker Ezra Bookstein screening his award winning documentary “The Rich Have Their Own Photographers”;
· One of Newsweek’s “Top 50 Rabbis in America”, Elie Kaunfer discussing if traditional prayers can truly express the spiritual beliefs we hold today.
LimmudPhilly is a volunteer created learningfest for EVERYONE in the Philadelphia Jewish world.
In one day of learning, we bring together teachers of Yiddish, Jewish knitting, history and talmudic study and learners from all backgrounds to exchange ideas in a vibrant and kinetic environment. Our program changes from year to year to reflect the passions of our volunteers. We hope that you will bring your ideas and volunteer with us.
