Summer comes early to Limmud

By Jessica Elgot, December 29, 2011

Compared to last year's snow and ice, the weather at Limmud was much more clement this year. New arrivals were greeted in the bar by a band of young Limmudniks playing a jazzy version of "Sunshine of Your Love"- the 1967 Cream classic. Limmud has been compared to a Jewish Woodstock – with different kinds of mood enhancers.

But our Limmud correspondent was dismayed at the knowledge of modern bartenders. He writes: "When I asked for a lager and lime, the young Limmud volunteer barmaid handed me lager - with a slice of lime. Not a drink in currency with young Jews, then (she did remove the offending fruit and found some cordial)"
