Brighton & Hove Jewry: A celebration of 250 years of history

Winston Pickett  Gordon Kay 

Red 1

On 31 December 1776, Israel Samuel gave his address on his marriage certificate and made history as Brighton's first recorded Jew. We will take your on a tour of 250 years of Brighton & Hove's Jewry: from early shuls to the Sassoons, Montefiores and more recent colourful history-makers who have contributed to this south coast centre of Jewish life.

Aligning the Stars - Mountain Spring Music

Siv Andersen 

Blue 33

Our physical world started as a explosion. Billions of years later, we are here. We are a product of billions of years of development. All of that is in us. If we can balance all of those natural forces in us, the natural world outside of us will come into balance. Let’s talk about it. We will also sing some ancient kabbalistic melodies together.

Daf Yomi (3 of 4)

Michael Pollak 

Green 27

Join us for a fast-paced journey through the sea of the Talmud, along with thousands of others across the globe in daily study. Today - Bava Metzia Daf 92

No place like home: poetry and jazz

Sam Grant  Mutasim Ali  Chani Smith  Michal Ish-Horowicz  Diti Ronen  Adi Keissar  Aviva Dautch 

Red 7

At the culmination of Limmud's Refugee Day, poets from Israel and the Diaspora will be reading their poems on the themes of home, exile and asylum with jazz interludes from a specially assembled group of Limmud musicians. This will be a thoughtful, creative, mellow and musical session to lead you gently into the night.

Song-writing workshop (2 of 2)

Jess Gold 

Turquoise 19

You may be a seasoned song-writer or a novice, you may wish to write a melody to a beloved Jewish text or perhaps a protest song or even seek to create a new Chanukah favourite. All are welcome and will be supported by Jess in creating something you can take home and share. Each session stands alone, but you can attend both to dive deeper.

Chanukah dreidel tournament

Limmud Social Programming Team 

Purple 29 (Monarch Overflow)

Come show off your dreidel-spinning skills in this tournament of spinning and winning. Many people will come, one will win it all! This tournament-style dreidel-off will be fun for all ages.

Comedy improvisation workshop

Sassy Sassy 

Red 6

Come along and learn some of the basic skills of comedy improvisation. No prior experience needed! 18+ only.

Come to Cabaret – a musical about Nazis, Jews, and “divine decadence”

David Benkof 

Orange 12

Oscar winner Cabaret is one of the most acclaimed films about the Nazi era – but it’s no Schindler’s List or Shoah. It explores Berlin’s descent into Hell through extraordinary symbolism, characterization, dialogue – and snazzy musical numbers. Try to watch it before coming to Limmud – but you don’t have to, as clips and summaries will be provided.

Gambling and God

Tom Sadan 

Yellow 21

Is God a calculated mastermind or simply a gambling addict? God put our Biblical ancestors to the test, relying on their trust to carry out God's instructions. However, God famously provided us with free will, so how was it possible that God knew that our ancestors wouldn't just turn around and say, 'No thanks God, I'm out.'

Israeli dance party (3 of 4)

Samuel Garas  Maurice Stone 

Marquee 1

Let your hair down and have fun at our late night Israeli dance party, a mixture of old and new, circle, line and partner dances. A lot of fun for lots of people! We start with easy dances so everyone can be included. So save your energy and join our circle!

Is the Jewish Right out of ideas?

Simon Gordon  Tom Wilson  Yishai Fleisher  Aylana Meisel  Annika Hernroth-Rothstein  Jonathan Neumann 

Orange 14

Historically, conservatives have routinely been subject to ridicule for allegedly lacking ideas. Stupid, know-nothings, scaremongers and warmongers. Are these fair representations of the Jewish and Israeli Right? If they have ideas, what are they? If not, why not? This intimate conversation will discuss where the Right is, and where it's going.

Klezmer salsa orchestra from Paris : Cigarillos en el Shtruddle

David el Shatran 

Marquee 3

Klezmer meets salsa, genres mix and opposites attract. Come along to this unique show where we blend Jewish music and Latin jazz, gypsy bears with Arabic-Andalusian soul and Klezmer melodies. With the full band here at Limmud Conference for the first time, we look forward to sharing the dance floor with you!

Lovin’ on Limmud

Limmud Social Programming Team 

Blue 32 (Millers)

Single and ready to mingle? Used to looking for love in all the wrong shules? Well come on down to Limmud Speed Dating and find your beshert to take to the Rebbeztin's Disco!

Misogynist Film Club: the musical!

Alex Davidson  Claire Berliner  Rose Prevezer  Jacqueline Nicholls 

Yellow 23

There is nothing like a dame! And there is nothing like a musical to bring out the sexism. Tragic divas, perky gals, Disney Princesses etc. will be under the scrutiny of JW3’s Misogynist Film Club. As they say: it isn’t over till the body-shamed, female victim sings.

On sacred spaces: a Christian-Jewish perspective

Stephen Innes 

Red 3

The notion of the sacred is one of the most fundamental in any religious tradition, but it is particularly so for Christians and Jews. Where (or how) does a human being encounter the divine? We consider the significance of the sacred with regard to space, time and a fundamental aspect of daily life – human relationships.

Pickle Recipe (98 mins)

UK Jewish Film  Daniel Cainer 

Orange 13

Seeing his sound equipment trashed in a freak accident, Joey Miller's in dire need of money. Against his better judgement he partners up with his shady uncle Morty to steal his grandmother’s highly guarded pickle recipe to sell it for a small fortune. As expected, the plan goes horribly wrong, but the lesson Joey learns in the process is priceless. Dir Michael Manasseri, USA, 2016

Room 101/613

Clive Lawton  Raymond Simonson  Abi Symons  Abigail Morris  Mark Greenfield 

Orange 15

JW3 presents this session, in which three notable Limmud favourites are invited to discuss their pet Jewish hates and persuade the hosts to consign those hates to oblivion in Room 101, a location whose name is inspired by the torture room in the novel "Nineteen Eighty-Four".

Story slam - miracles IRL

Limmud Social Programming Team 

Red 4

Storytelling brings people together and helps us make meaning in our lives. This intimate bar session is an opportunity for people to share their personal experiences of miracles. Come prepared with a story of a miracle in your life and you may be picked to tell your story! Stories must be true and under four minutes. Or just come to listen.

Tales of Jewish Sudan

Daisy Abboudi 

Red 5

The Jewish Community in Sudan was small, yet vibrant and successful until the late 1960’s when life became unbearably hostile and its members dispersed. For the last year Daisy Abboudi has been recording their spirited memories and delicious recipes in order to preserve the history and culture of this unique community which she'd love to share with you.

The double helix: navigating narratives of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict (2 of 4)

Robin Moss 

Yellow 24

Come and be a guinea pig! UJIA are developing a new way to understand Israel – and we need your help! You’ll hear a session by a brilliant educator, and in return, you spend the last 10 mins telling us how it was. Today, we'll open Pandora's Box by getting to grips with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Expect complexity, controversy and contradictions!

The two British brothers who nearly saved the Confederacy

Adam Mendelsohn 

Blue 34

Saul Isaac is remembered today as the first Jew elected to the House of Commons as a Conservative. Less well-remembered is his earlier career as an international arms dealer and blockade runner during the American Civil War. This session will explore the rise, fall, and rise again of two extraordinary siblings who underwrote the Confederacy.

Well Circle Workshop

Emily Hilton  Naomi Minsky  Madeleine Fresko-Brown  Georgina Bye  Deborah Blausten  Hannah Gaventa  Sarah Waxman 

Green 26

Hey homegirls, are you down with empowerment and women supporting women? If the answer is yes, this workshop’s for you. Join Sarah and members of the London group to discover how you can create your own space for women, revitalise Rosh Chodesh traditions and tackle tough gender issues together.

Modern jive at Limmud (2 of 3)

Jonathan Hunter  Dan Mackenzie 

Marquee 2

Modern jive is a fun, easy to learn, partner dance. Simple footwork and a set of basic moves will have you navigating the dance floor like a pro in no time at all. There are 3 sessions over conference each teaching a few basic moves that can be joined into a routine. Don't worry if you missed one though, every session will be beginner friendly.

Let's party like it's 2006!

Limmud Development and Connection Team 

Bar

Do you know your Limmoed from your Limoud from your Лимуд? Que?! Come and have a drink or 10 to celebrate a decade of Limmud International, after which you’re even less likely to know!

The lost generation?

Naomi Webber  Zoe Jacobs 

Red 2

Jews in their 20s and 30s have been dubbed the "lost generation" owing to low shul membership. Is our generation really lost? And if not, where are we? We want to know your views.
