Re­vealed — the darker side of Lim­mud ac­tiv­ity


LIM­MUD IS go­ing noc­tur­nal in a bid to at­tract a new au­di­ence.

Post-Shab­bat on March 4, Lim­mud Af­ter Dark in North­wood will be­gin with a mu­si­cal hav­dalah led by Rabbi David Soe­tendorp and klezmer band Tantz.

Speak­ers will in­clude Rabbi Jonathan Ro­main and Clive Lawton and pro­gramme top­ics will run the gamut from Leonard Co­hen to Don­ald Trump and from the Jewish his­tory of vodka to the Jewish val­ues of a sushi mas­ter.

The event is be­ing hosted by Har­row Lim­mud and looks set to be a sell­out with around 400 par­tic­i­pants.

Doreen Sa­muels, one of the or­gan­is­ers, was in­spired by a Lim­mud she at­tended on hol­i­day. “When I was in New Zealand two years ago I went to Lim­mud there. It started with a hav­dalah which was re­ally lovely.”

She hopes the event’s tim­ing will bring in more young pro­fes­sion­als. “Peo­ple who have never been to Lim­mud be­fore will come to this and will be des­per­ate to come to the next one,” she said.
