10269515_747217698693671_2933681543340394208_nLimmud conference has bid farewell to Warwick University after eight years ahead of its relocation to the Birmingham NEC.

Organisational chairman Kevin Sefton said: “Warwick has seen several landmark moments. As we evolve and re-imagine Limmud Conference, volunteers have found a wonderful new site in Birmingham which offers great opportunities to continue to create magical events. Three co-chairs have already starting planning.”

Conference 2015 co-chair Joanna Ish-Horowicz said: “The event has been at capacity in recent years so the Birmingham venue will allow our team to ensure we have the facilities in categories where there has been the highest demand. “We’re looking forward to transforming the creative spaces into a Limmud environment. Prices at the new site will be in line with those at Warwick, which ensures the event is financially accessible.”

More than 2,500 participants from 28 countries took part in this year’s event, which ended on 1 January.
