Conference Program Tracks
LimmudLA's Annual Conference 2009 offered a broad variety of opportunities to learn and explore Jewish texts, arts, practice, culture, beliefs, and philosophy from traditional to progressive and everything in between.
Sessions led by our volunteer presenters were divided into seven program tracks:
Arts & Performance appreciating the intersection between Judaism and the arts, including music, drama, dance, comedy, poetry, storytelling, crafts, architecture, literature and film.
Global History and Culture embracing chronological and regional approaches to understanding the development of Jewish cultures around the globe, both past and present.
Identity and Responsibility examining the Jewish commitment to Tikkun Olam and social action, including ethics, interfaith relations, and the relationship of religion to the problems of the secular world.
Israel discovering the breadth and depth of the political, religious, national and cultural character of the Land of Israel.
Jewish LA addressing issues unique to LA Jewish life, including gaining historical perspectives on the community and looking at local groups and organizations.
Ritual and Prayer understanding Jewish ritual and prayer through exploration and teachings of traditional and unconventional observances.
Text & Thought investigating the intellectual and textual aspects of Judaism through study of Tanach, Midrash, Mishnah, and Talmud.
