Dear Limmudniks,

We have been closely following the global situation that is accelerating at an unprecedented rate. Unfortunately, in NY, cases of COVID19 have been steadily growing as well.

In light of these events, as well as with advice from Limmud FSU International, our upcoming May 2020 Limmud FSU NY Festival will be postponed. The health and safety of our community have always been and remain our top priority.

The new dates for the conference will be announced shortly.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us by email at and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to seeing you soon.
