A weekend of Jewish learning and creativity, Limmud-Oz is being held at Sydney’s UNSW on the long weekend of June 10-12.

Shimona Tzuckernick

Attracting crowds of over 1,000 participants, the event is only held every two years in Sydney and planners have organised as an enriching and surprising program!

Be spoilt for choice with the impressive line-up of dynamic speakers and panels, hands-on workshops, revealing interviews and moving performances. Participate in vibrant conversations and meet people from a variety of backgrounds and affiliations.

Into music? Enjoy performances by the lead singer of popular Israeli rock band ‘Monica Sex’ and a clarinetist with the Israeli Philharmonic. Across the sound spectrum, your tastes will be catered to.

Alexander Beider

Speaking of which, an Israel MasterChef winner will have foodies’ tastebuds dancing with delectable Kosher Gourmet dishes. Be tempted by his cooking demonstrations of such recipes as pumpkin carpaccio and cold Persian soup with rose petals and honey.

Each hour there’ll be an array of fascinating international and local presenters to choose from. Whether you feel like a creative session with someone from the arts or want info on the latest events in the Middle East, there’ll be something of interest.

Geopolitics expert and engaging speaker Hagai Segal, who’s participated in Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, will address the hot topic of what Trump’s election means for US Foreign Policy, especially regarding Israel and the Middle-East.

Featured in National Geographic, and having addressed the UN Staff Recreation Council on ‘Kabbalah for Global Peace’, Shimona Tzuckernick is renowned for making Kabbalah relevant to every life facet —career, relationships, health, education, creativity and spirituality.

And with PhDs in both Applied Mathematics and Jewish Studies, Dr Alexander Beider is an expert in Jewish etymology and linguistics, which means you can find out all about what Jewish names say about you.

After all that excitement, you may want to kick back and ‘chillax’ in the always-popular meditation workshop.
