Does God have a sense of humour?

Danny Bermant 

Red 4

In my local shule growing up, the Rabbi would always start his sermon with a joke. Why does humour play such a major role in our religion? Has it always been that way? And what does it tell us about Judaism? Join us as we take a journey through Jewish humour through the ages, from the Torah to the Talmud to the present day.

Israeli dance party (4 of 4)

Maurice Stone  Samuel Garas 

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!

The rebbetzins’ disco

Jacqueline Nicholls  Raymond Simonson 

Marquee 3

And you shall love your God with all your heart & soul, blues, funk, hip-hop, R&B, rock, indie disco, reggae, euro-pop... Standing still, or swaying, is not an option. The Rebbetzins will get your whole body moving and your soul alight. Because these are playlists for the sake of heaven.

Midnight Chavruta - Tzedakah (4 of 4)

Limmud Chavruta Project 

Red 7

Celebrating a remarkable 20 years, Chavruta is at the heart of Limmud. Join us in impassioned debate; tonight we look at the broader implications of the mitzvah of tzedakah. What does this mitzvah imply about Judaism in general? Can we possibly fathom the role of such divine commandments? What will happen to tzedakah in the World to Come?

2016 in Memoriam; a musical tribute

Nathan Finkel 

Red 6

The Limmud House Band present a one off special tribute to our beloved musical stars who sadly passed away in 2016. Come and sing along to your favourite songs by cherished artists including: David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, Prince and George Michael and others
