Abstract:

In January 2006, over 750 Jewish New Yorkers of all ages and many different backgrounds came together for the second annual Limmud NY event at Kutshers Resort in the Catskill Mountains. In its second year, Limmud NY asked Brandeis University's Cohen Center for Modern Jewish Studies (CMJS) to evaluate its extended weekend in the Catskills as well as the volunteer planning leading up to it. CMJS interviewed members of the planning teams, some in leadership and some in supporting positions, observed the event, and conducted a survey of all participants.
