Limmud FSU is for you!

Limmud FSU (FSU stands for Former Soviet Union) is an amazing opportunity. Having attended seven conferences so far, I can say with certainty that Limmud is right for you. By that I mean that these educational events allow any Russian-Jewish person to feel a part of the community. And the broad range of simultaneous activities […]

Место встречи: Лимуд

Место встречи: Лимуд! С будущим избранником можно познакомиться в любом месте: на улице, в очереди, на танцах. Если вы познакомились на танцах, то скорее всего ваша будущая половина или хорошо танцует, или хотя бы испытывает интерес к танцам, если в очереди на заправку, то вы хотя бы сможете подменивать друг друга в ваших путешествиях.

My Limmud FSU journey

Every day we meet people who have traveled a journey – a journey through time, space, political regimes, and often unique careers. We interact with these people and learn things about their pasts and the generations that led to the realities we see today. More often than not the stories are different and the journeys […]

Ability to shape up the future of my family and the Jewish community

Being a part of the Limmud family for the second year feels great and personally rewarding. Each year, the conference brings together people of all ages from our local and global community who come together to learn and acquire something new, socialize, network, and feel belonging. As a person who left former Soviet Union for […]

Limmud FSU – a feeling of belonging

Limmud for me began a few years ago when I attended a 1 day conference on Long Island. I went to hang out with my friends without knowing anything about it. That day I came back home with an amazing energy and desire to be a part of this movement. Since then, I’ve been to […]

Limmud FSU – not what I expected..

Truth be told, it has been a while since I have been an avid community events participant, if ever. Growing up in Israel since the age of nine in a minimally traditional environment –which I believe many children of Soviet parents have experienced—I was hesitant about Limmud when my good friend Alexander brought forward the […]

Limmud FSU experience – A presenter’s perspective

I first heard about Limmud FSU from my friend, Leon Martynenko, who I’ve known since the Bathurst JCC days (around 2006-2007). Since my time working at the JCC, I’ve started up my own personal training company, released 4 books, and started doing lots of public speaking engagements, about exercise and nutrition, which I regularly post […]

My Experience at Limmud FSU

Having been raised by two parents that emigrated from the Soviet Union to Israel in the early 1990s, I was no stranger to the Russian-Jewish rhetoric. A rhetoric that was filled with conflicting emotions. I felt my parents’ deep-seated love for their city of Saint Petersburg, for the Russian culture, customs and cuisine, and for […]

Why Limmud?

I was born and raised in the south of the former SU, the city of Tashkent. It was a very warm city in all respects and people didn’t, mostly, look at one another through the race prism. When I was growing up, Tashkent was probably a unique conglomerate. It had people from practically every ethnicity […]

Will I attend the conference this year?

   Last year I had an opportunity to attend my first Limmud FSU conference in Huntsville, Ontario. The conference not only met, but exceeded all of my expectations for a number of reasons.   First of all, I was fascinated with the diversity of lectures, workshops, interviews and panel discussions that were offered at the […]

Why Limmud?

  It took me a year to write my “Why Limmud” blurb: I’ve had so many amazing memories and it’s been very difficult for me to put my gratitude into words. I also needed the time to fully comprehend the significance of my experience. I can say with ease that there was a great return […]

I was new to Toronto, wanted to get to know the Russian-Jewish community, and was excited about the idea of a whole conference focused on learning. When I attended my first Limmud FSU conference last year- I knew I wanted to contribute to it […]

Why do I do Limmud?

I am part of Limmud because I decided to build my life in Canada, and I want to be part of this community. When I first came to Canada I was introduced to the idea of community, which was new to me. Growing up in Israel, I never bothered myself with the idea of community […]

Why do I do Limmud?

After attending my first Limmud FSU conference in Princeton, NJ in March of 2013, I understood that this is “my thing”, and here is why. There are a few reasons, that lead me to realize that Limmud FSU is “my thing”. Some of those reasons are very trivial; however, this fact neither diminishes the importance of […]

The Power of Limmud FSU

  When I first heard of Limmud FSU I thought it was too good to be true — a gathering of Russian-Jewish people, who all come from different religious sects, and cultural and socio-economic backgrounds to participate in a weekend of Jewish learning where everyone is equal. You know the old saying, “two Jews and […]
