Yom Limmud

Bringing people together of all backgrounds and ages to help nurture, mentor, and celebrate Jewish life and learning for an afternoon, is the goal of Tidewater Yom Limmud.

Part of the Simon Family JCC’s Lee and Bernard Jaffe* Family Jewish Book Festival, the event is open to the community, regardless of religious affiliation. Tidewater Yom Limmud is presented in partnership with the Board of Rabbis and Cantors of Hampton Roads, in coordination with the Global Day of Jewish Learning, and is part of a worldwide grassroots phenomenon based on the values of giving, learning, participation, and respect.

In addition to interactive breakout sessions, keynote speakers and discussion leaders include Rabbi Michael Panitz, Ezra Glinter, author of Have I Got a Story for You, and Rabbi Barry Schwartz, director of the Jewish Publication Society.

Join the journey with Tidewater Yom Limmud —after all, everyone has something to learn and something to share.
