Limmud FSU is an experience! It is a fun, dynamic and pluralistic gathering of Russian-speaking Jewish adults, and young families, for a weekend learning retreat. Organized entirely by volunteers, it’s designed to re-energize and empower our community, to connect with each other, and to explore our common culture, heritage and identity. Limmud comes from Hebrew and means “to learn”. FSU stands for Former Soviet Union.
