LIMMUD NZ 2018 launched this week at well-attended Taste of Limmud events in both Auckland and Wellington.

Over 80 people attended the Auckland event at Diocesan School, while over 45 went along to the Wellington event at the WJCC.

Attendees at both events were treated to fascinating presentations by well known journalists Yair Rosenberg (TabletMag) and Allison Kaplan Sommer (Haaretz).

The Auckland presentations – along with a conversation between veteran New Zealand journalist, Mark Jennings, and Allison and Yair – were live streamed on Facebook and can be viewed below.

In Wellington, the presentations were accompanied by a conversation between Deb Hart and Allison and Yair.
