|Online registration is now CLOSED! Participants can still register at the door, however. Due to high attendance numbers, Friday night's Shabbat dinner is at full capacity! For this reason, anyone who registers at the door for the entire weekend will unfortunately have to miss Friday's dinner, but will also be charged a reduced registration fee of $75.
There is still plenty of room for you at LimmudFest. The only part that is full is Friday's Shabbat dinner. So come spend Saturday and Sunday with us; share in the learning!
Door registration will be held at Temple Sinai on Friday, March 7 from 5:00—5:45 pm and on Saturday, March 8 from 6:45—7:15 pm. It will reopen at the Lavin-Bernick Center at Tulane University on Sunday, March 9 from 8:30—10:00 am.
See you at LimmudFest!

Lavin-Bernick Center, Tulane University
LimmudFest New Orleans is a celebration of Jewish culture, thought, the arts, learning, and teaching, and so much more — all planned by a community of volunteers. If you have not already signed up for a volunteer shift at LimmudFest New Orleans 2014, sign up for a volunteer shift here.
It is part of a global movement inspired by the idea that when Jews from diverse backgrounds come together to celebrate and learn about everything Jewish, the entire community is enriched.
This year, LimmudFest’s celebration of learning, community, and culture expands to an entire Shabbat. It will be everything you loved about LimmudFest 2012, and so much more! During Shabbat, Reform, Conservative, Orthodox, and alternative services will be held, followed by communal meals and learning sessions. On Sunday, there will be an entire day of learning. Altogether, there will be more than 90 sessions on everything Jewish, ranging from art and music to text study and history.
This will be the first Limmud ever to have all the synagogues themselves offering services under one roof, under Limmud auspices. The Reform and Conservative synagogues will be “closing up shop” and offering Shabbat services at Limmud, not at their own buildings. After individual services, participants will come together for meals.

We welcome out-of-town Limmudniks and are offering both home hospitality and discounted hotel rooms. We also have home hospitality for locals who want to be within walking distance of Temple Sinai for Shabbat. Go to the hospitality page for more details.
