Why Volunteer

___

Thousands of volunteers on all 6 continents organize 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.

When you volunteer with Limmud FSU, you:

  • Gain experience in organizing a major event
  • Personally contribute to the development of Jewish culture in your community
  • Connect with other amazing like-minded individuals
  • Receive satisfaction from doing good, $50 off registration price and other perks during conference

How does this work

___

At Limmud, everyone can find a role/task to utilize their unique skills or do something completely new.  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.

We will try our best to take into consideration your preferred types of activities. We expect a time commitment of 4 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.
