WHAT WILL SHABBAT BE LIKE AT LIMMUD?

Shabbat will begin with a joint Kabbalat Shabbat, and we will celebrate together with festive meals and community singing. There will be a variety of Shabbat services options, which allow those who observe different traditions to worship and learn in a comfortable setting. For those who are not prayerfully inclined, there will also be a full roster of Limmud learning opportunities.

What about traditional Shabbat observance?  I am shomer Shabbat.  Will I be comfortable at Limmud?
Absolutely! In addition to prayer services, there will be many shomer-shabbat-friendly sessions which will employ no electrical devices. Those sessions will be clearly marked on the printed schedule. All meals are kosher and prepared in accordance with Shabbat observance rules, supervised by Vaad of Northern California. And we’ll have an Eruv around the residential and learning areas on campus. (We had fun explaining THAT one to SSU!)

What if I don’t want to go to prayer services?
There will be a full roster of Limmud sessions during Shabbat. Plus, some will be observance-friendly, and some will make use of audio and visual equipment and other electrical devices.

I like celebrating Shabbat with singing accompanied by musical instruments. Will that kind of prayer service be available?
Yes!  We plan to have prayer services of many different types, including those with musical instruments.

Will my kids be able to go to Camp Limmud on Shabbat?  Will the activities be appropriate for Shabbat observant families?
Of course! ALL activities on Shabbat will be both appropriate for Shabbat observant kids AND a ton of fun!
