Rachel Creeger 

We might not be at Festival in the conventional way but that doesn't mean we can't have our usual comedy gig! Join award winning stand up comedian Rachel Creeger for 50 minutes of laughter as she hosts special guests from around the comedy circuit. Grab a drink (from your own fridge or cupboard this year), sit back and enjoy.

With 40 years of history, there are now many of us who won't be familiar with how the Limmud we know and love started. Fortunately, our panel includes a number of the people who were there from the beginning. Come and hear them shed light on the roots and early days of the Limmud community.

Tayelet: Israeli dance for Zoom at home

We have adapted material to give you some exercise and fun even if you have limited space. So come and join us in a session which will give you energy to enjoy your other virtual Limmud sessions!

The best of Limmud Buenos Aires: UNHRC’s anti-Israel problem and why we should fight it

A Spotlight on Limmud Buenos Aires  Ezequiel Podjarny 

International Hub

The relationship between Israel and the UN has been marked by conflict, unfairness and bias for a very long time. The Human Rights Council was supposed to address some of these issues, but they have persisted, and the distance between the UN Human Rights institutions and Israel has never been greater. In this session, we will explore the UN's obsession with Israel and why it is crucial that we don't give up on the UN. This goes beyond being pro-Israel or pro-Palestinian, this is a human rights issue that requires our full attention.
