Limmud Cape Town: Together Again – 2022


Limmud Cape Town: Together Again, will take place from Friday 19 August to Sunday 21 August. It is a non-residential Limmud but the conference centre is surrounded by three world-class hotels that you can book to stay at for the weekend. This year we have decided to offer a range of ticket options to allow you to truly customise your Limmud journey. You can choose to join us: 

  • For the full weekend conference happening Saturday to Sunday, inclusive of all meals;
  • For our special Friday Night Gala Dinner, which includes Shabbat Services and exclusive sessions with international presenters;
  • For the day on Sunday only, inclusive of all meals;
  • OR, do it all!


The UCT Graduate School of Business & the Protea by Marriott Hotel at the V&A Waterfront. 9 Portswood Rd, Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, Cape Town, 8002.

The venue will be covered by an Eruv, but we highly recommend booking at one of the nearby hotels to be close to all the action!

Introducing this year’s co-chairs:


Gill Saks is from Observatory in Cape Town. She holds the role of Care Co-Ordinator at Temple Israel and has recently finished a course in grief counselling training through Nechama. Gill joined the Limmud programming team in 2018 and has been actively involved since then. Limmud is where Gill found her “Jewish Home” – a place where community and making connections and being curious all meet. Gill is passionate about connecting communities. She is very proud to have partnered with Project Bayit to secure new housing for Tish, who has been a part of Gill’s family since her children Jacob and Ruby were small.


Gabriella Saven is a 24-year-old South African Jewess passionate about community, development, diplomacy, and security. She completed her B.Soc.Sci in Politics and Governance, and Law; and postgraduate Honours Degree in Development Studies at UCT. She is an active Jewish community member who has a particular affinity for youth leadership development and has worked with several South African and International Jewish organisations. For Gabriella, Limmud is both a radical and obvious idea: to build Jewish community where people of all affiliations, denominations, identities, and opinions can come together to learn, teach, and share with one another. 


Limmud is completely driven by volunteers. Limmud Cape Town welcomes anyone wishing to take part in this amazing effort. Whether you have two hours to give or two hundred, if you are looking for a way to contribute to creating a more well rounded and cohesive Jewish community – Limmud Cape Town is the place for you.
