In 2009, Steffi Karp attended a Limmud event in Atlanta, Georgia. Her goal was to learn (Limmud is Hebrew for "learning") more about Jewish culture. The experience was so rewarding that she walked away inspired to found a chapter back home in Boston.
LimmudBoston is celebrating it's 10th year anniversary this year.
Steffi told us, “The goal of the event is to expose as many people to Jewish culture. It’s not a religious conference, it’s a cultural conference. For Jewish culture and life long learning. We hope that it will enrich the community in many ways.”
This week on the podcast we chat with Steffi about how they operate using the opposite of a hierarchy, why they plan their event schedule using post-it notes, and ways to inspire attendees to continue learning after the event's over.
