More than 300 Jewish Atlantans and out-of-towners converged on the Kaplan Mitchell Retreat and Conference Center at Camp Ramah Darom in Clayton in the North Georgia mountains over Labor Day weekend for the eighth annual LimmudFest organized by Limmud Atlanta + Southeast, which recently marked its 10th anniversary. It was a nonstop weekend of education, music, food and more.
Before LimmudFest, activists from Limmud organizations across the United States and Canada voted to create a Limmud hub in North America to advance regional development within the global Limmud movement.
