Limmud FSU West Coast hopes to inspire young people intellectually and spiritually. In 2016 Limmud FSU came to the West Coast for the first time with a premiere event in Los Angeles. The main goal - to serve as a forum to explore, express and experience the common Russian Jewish heritage in the best Limmud FSU tradition.
The event included more than 60 sessions including workshops, discussions, masterclasses, film screenings, lectures, and a full teenage and children programs. Moreover- the program included also a stand-up comedy, music, dancing, spirited Shabbat celebration, Saturday Night Awards Gala and concert, and late night jam sessions.
In 2017 a record number of 800 Russian-speaking Jews attended the first ever Limmud FSU West Coast conference in the San Francisco Bay Area, the biggest Jewish event geared towards the Russian-speaking Jewish community in the whole region. It took place at Marriott City Center Oakland, after months of work done by a devoted team of young adult volunteers and leadership, and featured an array of more than 100 diverse sessions and speakers from around the world on various subjects, with a special focus on the field of innovation, hi-tech and technology.
