Rabbi’s Message Hits The Mark


What an inspiring message from Rabbi Ari Israel about respecting fundamental differences while forging common goals and positively challenging each other (“A Lesson in Communal Relations,” Feb. 27). This is the underlying mission of Limmud Baltimore, an entirely volunteer-driven nonprofit organization, which is now in its third year.

At its core, the Baltimore Jewish community is richly diverse, chock full of different opinions about Jewish practice, thought and belief. Like Rabbi Israel’s nuclear family, a profound understanding and acceptance of each member’s unique differences fosters strength of the overall unit. We at Limmud Baltimore, through events and the development of programming, aspire to create community unity. To Jews who might not otherwise meet or interact, we offer the opportunity to celebrate Jewish study, culture and identity in a warm and welcoming environment.

We invite Rabbi Israel and the entire Jewish community to join us on Sunday, March 23 for a Taste of Limmud workshop at the Owings Mills JCC and at Goucher College on Sunday, Sept. 7 for our third annual LimmudFEST.
