At any Limmud FSU event, be it in Israel, Russia, Ukraine or the U.S., one thing you can be certain of is a potpourri of sessions focused around Jewish culture, Jewish education and Jewish knowledge. You can also count on a memorable opening evening program. Last week’s Limmud FSU in Be’er Sheva didn’t disappoint in either content or entertainment. Here are some highlights:
