• ATID BAMIDBAR is proud to be a leading partner, along with MELITZ, Hillel and BINA, in organizing the first-ever Limmud-Negev celebration of Jewish culture, hosted in Yeroham on Sunday, December 13th, from 14:00 until late at night.

    Affiliated with Limmud International, Limmud-Negev boasted more than 70 presenters, who gave workshops, lectures, and performances. There was a mind-boggling spectrum of topics in Hebrew, Russian and Yiddish, ranging from dance midrash and Jewish identity in films to solar energy in the Negev, and from halakhic rulings of North African rabbis to changing interpretations of Hannukah as reflected in songs through the ages. After a hot soup and couscous supper that warmed heart and body, more than 300 participants from the Negev, Arava, and well beyond, gathered together to light the third candle of Hannukah. The full program ended with a panel on culture in the Negev, highlighted by Kobi Oz singing some of his new songs. All participants cited the incredibly energizing and welcoming atmosphere.
