The day was split into five fifty-five minute slots, with time to change room between sessions, and time for lunch, socialising and refreshments. In each time slot participants chose one of six sessions.
At a Limmud, there is no signing up beforehand – a room volunteer will tell you if the room is full and you have to go to your second session choice.
Immediately after the day’s sessions
At the end of the day’s sessions we offered the option to visit the historic synagogue in Park Row, the home of Bristol Hebrew Congregation, led by one of the day’s presenters. The building itself is an architectural gem, built in 1871, with artefacts from a synagogue demolished when Bristol’s town planners drove a road through its site.
