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 Israel at the age of 14 and then, another 14 year later, emigrated to Canada with her own family, I am proud to call Canada my home. I love Canada and embrace this amazing and a very unique opportunity that allows myself, my family, and my friends to maintain our identities no matter how dispersed and far from the religion some of us are.
Volunteering for Limmud provides me with a sense of control and the ability to shape up the future of my family and the Jewish community in general. The conference allows our children (and the entire community) to see that we have a lot of talents and skills to share and be proud of. The importance of our Jewish spirit to carry on and to be celebrated as we go through our lives should be very important to each and everyone one of us. See you at Limmud FSU EXPLORE!
