Next month, Limmud Fest provides a chance for parents to play and learn along with their kids.

limmudOver the weekend of November 25-27, Limmud Fest, a weekend of thought and fun in the Central Coast sun, will go into full swing. This festival’s beautiful Myuna Bay location is set to inspire learning as well as provide a relaxing atmosphere for all. Whether the sessions and presenters drive your interest or you’re excited about exploring the great outdoors, this year’s Limmud Fest has something for everyone.

For those who prefer to more actively engage with nature, an array of outdoor activities will be on offer. All can take advantage of the fresh country air by kayaking, challenging yourself on the ropes course, playing on the tennis courts or going for a swim in the pool. Make sure you bring the kids along, as they can enjoy the giant swing, playground and soccer field.

In addition to the outdoor amenities for the kids, madrichim from various youth movements will oversee the program for primary school aged children as well as provide programming for the under-5s. The weekend is not limited to kids and adults since for the first time, this year Limmud Fest will be offering an exciting teen program. This will feature TED talks and sessions with presenters – including internet sensation and US spoken word artist Caroline Rothstein – who will ensure that the teenagers are kept entertained.

In addition to the programs and outdoor activities, there will be music, campfires and a silent disco, as well as the opportunity to take part in Shabbat celebrations and meals. Whatever people’s religious observance or practices, the aim of the weekend is to create an inclusive environment for everyone. Whether it’s fun, food or food for thought, the Limmud Fest weekend offers something for all the family.
