What is Limmud FSU AUSTRALIA?
Limmud FSU is a dynamic and pluralistic Festival of Russian-Jewish learning, culture and creativity. It empowers and brings together people of all ages, who are interested and inspired by the rich history and unique legacy of Russian speaking Jewry. It is an encompassing experience for the community, provided by people within our community.
The first Limmud FSU Festival was held in Moscow in 2006 and since then has evolved into an independent educational and communal network of annual conferences and festivals, attracting more than 100,000 participants all over the world.
In March 2015 Limmud FSU came to Australia for the first time, gathering hundreds of people from Melbourne and Sydney.
International guests from Israel, USA and Russia, as well as local presenters, gave lectures, ran workshops, and created discussions in English, Russian and Hebrew.
And after Limmud FSU in 2016 and 2018, the Festival became the most central event in the life of Russian speaking Jewish Community in Australia.
