Hi! I’m delighted to be coming to Limmud to experience such a rich learning experience and meet new people who share similar interests.
I’m interested in a broad range of subjects, especially as they relate to the intergenerational transmission of culture through the arts and creativity. Part of my ancestry comes from my paternal grand parents’ Turkish-Sephardic community in West London, UK and I am particularly interested in the preservation of Judeo Espagnol, Turkish-Sephardic cooking and traditions. I’m also interested in contemporary Jewish spiritual practices and belong to a Jewish Renewal congregation in Oakland, CA. Interested in alliance building between Jewish and other religious ethnic communities against oppression.
