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 info@limmudfsuus.org and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

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

Why Volunteer

Thousands of volunteers on all 6 continents organize more than 80 Limmuds per year.

Personal contribution of everyone is a fundamental principle of Limmud. Organizers, presenters, participants, we all put in our time and energy selflessly, gratuitously and voluntary.

When you volunteer with LIMMUD FSU NY, you:

  • Gain experience in organizing a major event
  • Personally contribute to the development of Jewish culture in your community
  • Connect with other amazing like-minded individuals
  • Become eligible for the year long Mini LIMMUD FSU NY program for Volunteers only with the World known presenters from all over the world.

How does this work

At Limmud, everyone can find a role/task to utilize their unique skills or do something completely new. Each volunteer chooses a type of activity consistent with their skills or makes a willful decision to do something completely new within one of the committees.

We will try our best to take into consideration your preferred types of activities. We expect a time commitment of 1-2 hours spread over each day of the conference. The rest of the time a volunteer can take part in the programming just like any other participant.
