Limmud Institute

The Limmud Institute invites you to participate in our rich and diverse offerings. Whatever your level of knowledge and participation, and however varied your interests, we are sure that you will find a program that fulfills your needs. Come join us as we increase our Hebrew fluency, our knowledge of sacred texts and traditions, our understanding of contemporary Jewish concerns, and as we deepen our personal learning and spiritual growth. Our programs are open to the public and we encourage participation by members and non-members alike. As always, no one will be denied the opportunity to engage in Jewish learning for financial reasons. If you have any questions or need any information, please feel free to email us at


 Music has deepened our ability to pray from the depths of our souls, sometimes with words and sometimes with melodies alone. This group will learn how singing can itself be a Jewish spiritual practice, and we will practice different techniques that help unleash the power of communal singing. Everyone is welcome. No prior knowledge required. Facilitated by Rabbi Schuck and Jack Klebanow.

For more information , e-mail , or call 914-235-2700, ext. 228.
