This year’s conference has a stunning array of participants and session presenters. With something for everyone and a really international feel. The new venue is working out brilliantly and the atmosphere is the most friendly ever. The Lyons Learning Project is committed to supporting everyone find their voice in the Jewish conversation about how and why to be Jewish, so Limmud has been a perfect opportunity to teach and learn.
Sunday saw Rabbi Dr Dalia Marx teach a moving session about the disappearance and reappearance of Sarah in reflections on the binding of Isaac. The modern Israel poetry was incredibly powerful in its emotions and representations. Dalia will also be teaching a series of sessions on the ever evolving language of prayer and sitting on the panel of women rabbis for ‘Tales from the Pulpit’ chaired by Rabbi Baroness Julia Neuberger: a session in honour of the 80th anniversary of the ordination of Regina Jonas, the first woman rabbi, whose ordination took place yesterday 80 years ago.
Rabbi Neil Janes was teaching most of Sunday and continuing through the week. Sunday saw an introduction to rabbinic texts and a session unpacking ethics – part of the Melton programme which the Lyons Learning Project hopes to offer in September 2016.
