More from Limmud Johannesburg

At Limmud Johannesburg, we believe that learning is a continual process. We run mini events throughout the year ranging from cooking demonstrations, book clubs, interactive learning sessions and social gatherings. Look out for them on  Facebook , Instagram and emails.

Introducing this year’s co-chairs:

Dani Hovsha

Dani is honoured to spend another year co-chairing Limmud Johannesburg, which has become a family tradition – one she is proud of!  Having run the South African Union of Jewish Students, serving as an executive member of the World Union of Jewish students and working for the Brandeis Center for Human Rights Under Law, she says she has never been as proud of an organization as Limmud.  As she works towards finishing her thesis in Holocaust literature, she is ever grateful that her life currently runs on a student schedule.

Laura Unterslak

Laura is a creative person who also loves solving problems, which makes her career choice of software development ideal. When she is not stuck behind her computer, she enjoys exercising and being outside. Most Saturday mornings, you will find her at the Atholl Parkrun and if she is not around on a Sunday, she is likely out climbing a mountain somewhere. Having been involved in Limmud since 2011, she looks forward to taking one step further on her Jewish journey by taking on the challenge of co-chairing Limmud Johannesburg.
