Review for LimmudLA, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.
