The Limmud Atlanta + Southeast event is Labor Day weekend, Sept. 4 to 7, at Camp Ramah Darom. It includes Shabbat and Selichot.

LimmudFest is one of three multiday North American conferences of the worldwide Limmud network, which has spread to more than 60 nations since its founding in Britain 30 years ago.

The festival attracts Jews of all backgrounds, lifestyles and ages for lively, open learning sessions and worship. Participants choose from more than 70 workshops, discussions, speakers, musical performances, arts, text study, Jewish culture and ritual, all planned by Limmud’s diverse volunteers. Anyone who registers may propose a session.

“No other place in Jewish Atlanta looks like Limmud,” board chair Nina Rubin said. “We are a crossroad for singles, young families with kids, Gen Xers, millennials, boomers and beyond.”

Camp Ramah @ Limmud is an option for children ages 5 to 12.

LimmudFest is not aligned with any denomination, and participants range from Orthodox synagogue members to the unaffiliated, united by a love of learning and a desire to craft their personal Jewish journeys. LimmudFest drops such titles as rabbi, doctor and professor, and everyone is on a first-name basis.

“We’re a comfortable place for every level of Jewish observance,” Rubin said. “Limmud makes it work with love and respect for all.”

The Camp Ramah Darom staff will run Camp Ramah @ Limmud for children ages 5 to 12. “My daughter looks forward to LimmudFest all year long,” said ModernTribe owner Jennie Rivlin Roberts, a past chair of LimmudFest. “She loves her Limmud friends and especially the Havdalah bonfire, complete with kosher s’mores.”

Ramah Darom’s recreational options, including swimming, boating, hiking and rock climbing, are open to participants when they aren’t in learning sessions. The dining room porch serves as a central site for schmoozing during the day and a bar for ages 21 and older at night.

Registration includes all kosher meals and lodging, which ranges from camping ($180 per person early bird, $199 regular) to staying in a deluxe motel room ($540 early, $590 regular). Visit www.limmudse.org/limmudfest.html for full registration information.
