Limmud Fest is a weekend retreat from November 22-24 with a Limmud style program, ‘combining a passion for Jewish learning, culture and discussion with a rural atmosphere and unique shabbat experience, set in beautiful natural surrounds’.
This year Jordy Silverstein, Jemima Light and Max Kaiser from the AJDS will be presenting a session on the 23rd entitled ‘Young, Jewish and Left’ – This session will look at how we can maintain and build a vibrant, young Jewish left culture in Melbourne and Australia, particularly in this new Coalition government environment. We will look at some exciting examples from the history of the Jewish left in Melbourne, talk about some of the underlying philosophies behind current Jewish left organising and investigate some inspiring case studies from the US.
The AJDS has serious issues with the political censorship enacted by Limmud at past events. We will continue to object to any instances of censorship by Limmud if they occur at future events. We hope, of course, that this won’t be necessary, and look forward to participating in this years Limmud Fest.
