Humans of Hebrew College Steffi Aronson Karp

“I am a lifelong Jewish learner. I created LimmudBoston after attending a myriad of Jewish adult learning conferences, including the original Limmud in the UK and Limmud Atlanta. The mission of LimmudBoston is both to create the annual conference and to inspire volunteers who share similar interests based on their LimmudBoston experiences. Hundreds of people attend and volunteer each year. Everyone is a learner at the annual conference, which is ‘big tent Judaism’ at its best. It offers an opportunity for everyone-beginner to scholar, young to young-at-heart to experience the newest Jewish offerings or study our most ancient texts in 70 different sessions. This year’s LimmudBoston conference will conclude with a community sing-along and Chanukah candle-lighting.”
