Not your Grandmother’s Limmud

Limmud Vancouver 2018 won’t be anything like the Limmud your grandmother would have attended.

Okay, so maybe there was no Limmud back in your grandmother’s lifetime.

Or maybe your grandmother did attend Limmud Vancouver in 2016.

It’s just an expression!

A way of saying: At LimmudVan 2018, we’ll be responding to current events.

And: At LimmudVan, we’ll engage some edgy topics. Not that your grandmother wasn’t edgy! She probably was quite radical.
