Thousands of volunteers on all 6 continents organise more than 80 Limmuds per year.
Personal contribution of everyone is a fundamental principle of Limmud. Organizers, presenters, participants, we all put in our time and energy selflessly, gratuitously and voluntary.

How does this work

At Limmud everyone can find a good and a useful task. We grouped all the tasks and so formed volunteer committees. Team titles and role descriptions might be subject to minor adjustments up until the beginning of Limmud. Each volunteer chooses a type of activity consistent with their skills or makes a willful decision to do something completely new within one of the committees.



Welcoming participants, registering, supplying a booklet, an ID Badge, and other supporting materials


Providing participants and presenters with information (e.g. when is lunch time, where can one find a doctor, how to turn on a projector…)



Making sure things are running smoothly in the halls and classrooms, setting up presentation aids during sessions, handling real-time logistics


Assistance in setting up visual aids for presenters, work as a sound manager and lighting technician


Synchronous and consecutive translation, support for English-speaking and Hebrew-speaking presenters

Photo & Video

Documenting the conference on video, selecting and arranging the photo materials, video production


Providing operational assistance in hot spots, for example, when short of volunteers, in case of emergency, technical failure or other unforeseen circumstances



Work with our youngest conference participants


Assist in leading youth programs


Religion & Shabbat

Providing a comfortable environment for observing religious Jews (erection of an Eruv, assisting mashgiach, ensuring dedicated areas for synagogues of different denominations, etc.)

We will try our best to take into consideration your preferences for teams, however, we cannot guarantee your placement. We expect from every volunteer a time commitment of 8 hours spread over the 3 days of the conference. The rest of the time a volunteer can take part in the programming just like any other participant.

What do you get out of volunteering at Limmud
