What is the Shabbat experience at LimmudFest?
Limmud brings together hundreds of of Jews from diverse backgrounds who come with a wide range of observance, Jewish knowledge, and comfort with Jewish tradition. During LimmudFest, we seek to create a Shabbat atmosphere by asking participants to refrain from using cell phones, electronics, cars, cameras, and musical instruments in public spaces during Shabbat. Ramah Darom provides delicious Shabbat meals with the traditional ritual needs. There are usually 'Tisch' sessions with singing and an open bar for socializing and memorable shabbat vibes.
What about sessions that are scheduled on Shabbat?
To respect everyone's Shabbat practices, the LimmudFest planning team takes great care to make sure sessions that are not Shabbat Friendly are scheduled on non-Shabbat days. Sessions will not have any writing or electronics. Music sessions may make use of acoustic instruments which will be noted in the program book.
What level of Kashrut can I expect at LimmudFest?
The kitchen facilities at Ramah Darom are under the year-round supervision of the Atlanta Kasruth Commission (AKC) which adheres to Orthodox kashrut standards. No outside food or drink is permitted into the dining hall at any time. Please email email@example.com with any concerns or questions.
