Cape Town

Same Limmud, New Model 

TICKET SALES for SUNDAY 20 AUGUST, now available via QUICKET.

We have gone out of our way to make this the most affordable LIMMUD ever for the YOUTH and FAMILIES, so please take advantage of our Early Bird Special, our Young Adult tickets at only R200, and our Teen ticket for a token R18.  Children are FREE. 

Limmud Cape Town will take place on the weekend of 18-20 August 2023.  

We have a completely new and exciting format this year: On the FRIDAY and SATURDAY we will integrate our international presenters into various organisations and venues in our community for special engagement sessions. And on the SUNDAY we will have a full day event of sessions by our international and local presenters with many choices of topics. From AI to Zionism… we will have it all! 

Tickets (inclusive of food, of course!) are on sale for our SUNDAY event.

Be sure to watch our social media pages and your inbox for more details of the FREE FRIDAY & SATURDAY programme.

Introducing this year’s co-chairs:

Sue Chalom
Sue is a writer, teacher and lover of all things artsy. On weekends she can be found in the mountains – her happy place. As a huge fan and participant of Limmud for over a decade, she is excited to be part of the team co-creating Limmud Cape Town 2023

Anita Shapiro
Anita has a background in film and education, and enjoys gathering people around shared interests, e.g. writing, menopause support, cold water swimming, and of course Jewish Learning.  Her favourite holiday is Sukkot with its powerful message of divine protection in a transient world, but also because she loves building things. Her goal for Limmud 2023 is, in the words of Walt Disney, “Build it and they will come!”

Gill Saks
Gill has a passion for cooking and feeding people, loves all things community centred and is a magical multitasker positively impacting all who meet her.

She found her spiritual home at Limmud in 2018 and has been a volunteer ever since. Gill believes in the Utopian Jewish community that is Limmud.

Karen Kallmann
Karen is a serial volunteer who is passionate about Jewish learning. She fell in love with Limmud at her very first Limmud session 15 years ago and has been thrilled to volunticipate every year since then. Karen is eager to share Limmud with all those who love it as well as those who are yet to discover its magic


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.

Limmud Cape Town will take you one step further on your Jewish journey. To get involved, email
