Limmud Oz will present a lineup of local and international speakers in Sydney at The Roundhouse, UNSW in mid-June.

Limmud events always provoke and inspire and the lineup for Limmud Oz this year includes some of its most diverse and storied presenters yet.

Hear from Yair Rosenberg – journalist, teller of stories and troller of Nazis, Lisa Leff –  historian of European Jewry, and award-winning author, Rachel Rosenthal – a Talmud scholar making Rabbinic wisdom relevant to the 21st century and more.

Be entertained by Shais Rishon – better known as MaNishtana – as he talks about the Jewish influence of comic book superheroes and talks about Jews of colour in America and dig deep into Judaism, Jewish life, and Israel with David Solomon, Rebecca Forgasz and the Israeli Ambassador to Australia Mark Sofer.

Shine a light on forbidden topics during the Taboo Talks series, a space for brave, difficult conversations about complicated human experiences – sexuality, baby-making, disability and aging – that may feature in our lives. Come with an open mind and leave with a new perspective.

Your ticket includes access to all sessions on the program, including a cocktail workshop on Saturday night, live music and more!

We’ve got the whole family covered, with a special Little Limmud program for children and teenagers running throughout the day. There are volunteer opportunities for teenagers, too.

Limmud will run from June 15 – 17.
