The Limmud International Study: Jewish Learning Communities on a Global Scale

By Steven M. Cohen, Ezra Kopelowitz

Limmud International, December 2011

Limmud, a Jewish education initiative, has grown from a small UK-based conference for 80 participants, to an international movement comprising annual events in more than 50 locations world-wide, reaching over 30,000 individuals per year. But what does success mean? What types of impact does participation in Limmud style Jewish learning exert:

  • On participants’ personal Jewish journeys?
  • On their communities, worldwide?

Until now, there has not been an attempt at a rigorous comparison across the different national Limmud groups to gain an understanding of the impact of participation. Topics covered by this survey include: Jewish identity, Jewish involvement, the Limmud experience, and impact of the program.

Topic: Engagement, Education, Program Evaluation, Evaluation, Adult Education
