One thought on “Cool Jewish Events: Taste of Limmud NY in Downtown Manhattan”
Wow, Limmud NY was just last month and it's starting up with Tastes for 2011 already? I notice the $10 charge: I suppose to help get the funds that you need before registration money comes in. Great idea that I'll pass to our Chicago “steering wheel” team….after they have time for a little rest from our event just yesterday.
Yesterday, I spent from 8am-10pm at the first ever Limmud Chicago and I had a fantastic time. I went to some enlightening and thought-provoking learning sessions and got to do a fair amount of schmoozing with different people, some of whom I happen to have other contacts with but Limmud gave us the perfect venue to interact in a particular Jewish context.
There were a few minor snags, but overall it was great. Good enough that I'm confident that there will be a Limmud Chicago 2011 which will likely be even bigger and better. Kind of like the “Tastes of Limmud” our new little Limmud makes me wonder if maybe my husband and I can get over to the big UK Limmud some day.
