Sunday, Jan. 31, 2016: Day of learning

I enjoyed all my sessions at Limmud Vancouver ’16 at Congregation Beth Israel where more than 400 people gathered Sunday morning. In the photo above, participants sing a wordless melody in the fascinating session called “Niggun as a Spiritual Practice” taught by Or Shalom’s Rabbi Hannah Dresner.

I’ll flesh out this post a little more Monday but for now I’ll share some photos from the day.

My day began with Annie Klein’s excellent session on “Wisdom in Later Life.”

For lunch, we picked up our pre-selected wraps and sat at tables where salad, oranges and brownies were waiting for us.

Limmud is all about volunteering and participating. Irina volunteers at the table selling presenters’ books, CDs and other products.

Methinks the handiwork of Avi Dolgin.
