Abstract: Limmud was initially established in 1980 as a small conference for Jewish educators. The organisation is now a world-leader in cross-communal, multi-generational, volunteer-led Jewish learning experiences. This chapter will examine what has become regarded as one of the most vibrant, dynamic and successful examples of alternative educational projects in the Jewish world: Limmud. It will explore the key factors that explain how this unique model has become a powerful vehicle for working towards the above-stated general aims of Jewish education, and why it has been referred to in British Jewry as the jewel in the community’s crown, as well as a focus of emulation throughout the Jewish world.
