Limmud FSU Ukraine project manager

“This is a very unusual Jewish project, mostly because this is not only a project, but a way of life. It is real, there is nothing artificial in it.It is a project of friends: everyone who comes to the conference bring their friends with them, and creates a truly magnificent "chain" reaction that the Limmud FSU celebration is the direct result of it".

Discovering treasures in the richess of Ukrainian Jewish history

Today, throughout Ukraine, the revival of interest, especially among younger generations, in Jewish learning is burgeoning at annual conferences and festivals.

Ukraine is rich in Jewish history - all forms of Jewish worship, ritual, learning and culture. Beginning in Yalta in 2008, annual Limmud festivals in Ukraine have become a tradition and central to the resurgence of Jewish life in the country . Inspiring festivals of Jewish education have been held in various parts of Ukraine - Odessa, Truskavetz, Uzhgorod, Vinnitsa, Yalta and Lviv.

Today, young Ukrainian Jews eagerly seek to meet new people, attend lectures and master classes, join discussions, hear concerts, and hang out in parties and nightly gatherings – all central to the whole Limmud FSU experience.
