Café Limmud [clear filter]
Sunday, March 6
 

10:00am

Café Limmud

New to the program this year is Cafe Limmud, a unique space at Limmud that aims to generate more discussion between presenters and participants. During each hour of the program, specific presenters will "host" a table in the venue's CC Lounge area. For presenters, it's a great opportunity to begin or continue a conversation with participants who may not have been able to attend your full session, and for participants you might just want to know one last thing from an engaging presenter following their talk. Participants are encouraged to visit the cafe throughout the day, and join one or more conversations of interest to them. All presenter times in Cafe Limmud will be advertised, but it's a fluid space where any new topic can be born. We look forward to sharing this new experience with you.
Books and other merchandise will be available for sale at some presenters' tables in each Cafe hour - come to schmooze and to browse!
