I love the people I meet and the chance I get to make a real difference in the LA Jewish community. I've seen how our perceptions of one another have changed and how that has impacted how Jews from different segments of the community relate to one another. I've made friends, been inspired, had fun and learned so much. It is amazing to me that an all volunteer organization can create such an incredible experience.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

speaking with participants who have said that it has reconnected them to their Judaism.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

working with other volunteers who are inspired by what LimmudLA can do for individual Jews as well as the LA Jewish community.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

create a new kind of understanding in the LA Jewish community.

I loved it! I met fantastic people, got to know people from my synagogue better, and had a lot of fun while learning.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

how involved I was able to be as soon as I stated interest.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Jews from all over LA and of all different background and denominations. It was a great, new experience.

I became involved with LimmudLA even before attending their annual conference. I was sold from the first description: a community of Jews from every background who come together to learn. In 2009, I attended my first Conference, where I connected with people I never would have met and enjoyed sessions in a variety of offerings. The weekend affirmed my connection to Judaism as well as my commitment to the organization.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

connecting with people I wouldn't otherwise have met. LimmudLA makes the LA Jewish community feel much smaller.

I went to Conference two years ago (the first one) not knowing anything about the organization. I was also a little jaded in my own practice of Judaism. I finished the weekend re-energized and just blown away by the range and depth of offerings. I went to session after session on everything from Israeli film to art to leadership skills, all set within a Jewish context. People were warm and open and it was by far a more diverse crowd than any I'd ever experienced. And the amazing thing is it is all volunteer!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I learned a lot of skills and have gotten great exposure to what is happening in the Jewish world. I've personally learned a lot and now have a wider range of friends too.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Being part of an organization with no agenda other than creating learning opportunities for all kinds of people. Pulling off something so major as conference is really rewarding.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

We're all volunteer and people come from a wide range of backgrounds. We have 20 something, single people, 50 year olds and every denomination is represented too.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

We would share it with other organizations in the community who were also devoted to multicultural, pluralistic learning. We would fly the most amazing presenters in from all over the world and offer bigger scholarships.
