Mission and Values

Limud emphasizes learning, diversity, community, empowerment and respect, these values are our values and those that unite us with all the Limudim around the world.

Limud Mallorca is made up of a group of diverse, passionate, creative and enthusiastic people who intend to offer an experience open to all, regardless of age, level of knowledge about Judaism or connection with Jewish life.

Limud Mallorca comes to life through participatory activities organized by independent volunteers whose objective is to create a space for the promotion of knowledge and diversity of the Jewish, and its multiple branches.

It favours the inclusion of new voices through different formats of learning, participation and exchange.

It will be an entire day of multidisciplinary activities of various Jewish, local and international educators, thinkers and creators, sharing their knowledge and experiences through a wide variety of events such as workshops, lectures, multimedia exhibitions, art and movement, among others.

It is Limud's mission to generate learning experiences in a favourable environment to facilitate the exchange of knowledge, experiences, doubts that any person, regardless of their degree of connection with their Jewish life, wants to share.

Create individual or collective opportunities for connection between participants and volunteers.

Expand the horizons of Judaism through:

Teaching and learning

Facilitating connections

Participation

Individual and community "Empowerment"

Diversity

Respect

Spirituality

OBJECTIVE:

Provide tools to each participant (speaker, volunteer or assistant) to take a step forward in their path of "practices", tradition and Jewish knowledge.

Make available to the participant the possibility of contacting relevant personages of teaching, communication, philosophy, literature, Jewish art, through different educational styles / informative styles (readings, films, workshops, meditation, debates, exhibitions and performances).

Ensure that there will always be an activity, no matter what level of knowledge, practice, or commitment to the Jewish life of each participant, for all participants.

ROSH HASHANAH

Limud Mallorca organized an event before sunset of Rosh Hashana in a place called Can Monroig in the town of Inca on the island of Mallorca, Spain. It was a beautiful day filled with food, family, and friends. Moriah Ferrus from Nova Escola Catalana in Barcelona came to Mallorca to teach and sing traditional and non-traditional melodies related to the Jewish New Year celebrated in September every year. Aaron Sztarkman came from Bern, Switzerland to accompany her on guitar and play other well known Israeli and Sephardic tunes. The event was catered by a local vegetarian restaurant. Guillem Reus i Planells spoke about the history of the Medieval Jewish Quarter of Inca as well as the potential for the venue to have been the site of an ancient synagogue with mikveh. The owners of the house museum Robert and Noelle were our gracious hosts. It was an event to remember with over 85 people from all ages and backgrounds coming to join together to laugh, learn, and connect with one another during the celebratory new year.

KIDS LIMUD 2018

This was a wonderful day of play based around the miracle of Chanukah. We started the day colouring in salt for our layered chanukiahs which the children could take home to light. We then went on to colour in and make our own dreidels before hearing the biblical story of Channukah. Snacks were had, musical chairs and statues were played and a wonderful morning of fun was had by all!

 

Holocaust Memorial Day

Six candles were lit in memory of 6 million Jews killed in the Holocaust. A seventh candle was lit in memory of the other victims: Romanies, homosexuals, communists, mental patients and Spanish political prisoners, among others.
