LimmudAZ will hold its second annual day of Jewish learning on Sunday, Jan. 31 at Arizona State University in Tempe.
Was the real writer of Shakespeare’s plays a Jewish woman? Is there an answer to the water wars in the Middle East? What are the top 20 Jewish books to read in the upcoming year? With more than 60 classes, LimmudAZ 2016 will explore these and other questions. Topic areas include Arts & Culture, Israel, Jewish Experience, Jewish Thought, Lifecycle, Off the Beaten Track, Spirituality, Teens & College, and Text & Torah.
Limmud, which means “to learn” in Hebrew, is a worldwide movement that started in Great Britain in 1980. LimmudAZ 2016 will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the ASU Memorial Union Student Conference Center. The cost of the day-long program, which includes a kosher lunch (gluten-free available), is $50 (adults under age 40, $36; teens under age 18, $15).
Babysitting is available for children up to three years of age. Camp Limmud offers a full day of activities for children pre-K to grade 5, with lunch and snacks. Both programs cost $15 per child for the day. Registration by Jan. 25 is required.
