Limmud sessions give teens the opportunity to pick 3 sessions that appeal to them most, and there are many to choose from.  Different Limmuds feature different types of interests such as technology, BBYO, and even college-planning sessions. There were a lot of fantastic Limmud opportunities, but the speaker that drew the biggest crowd was Casey Neistat. As a 34 year old director and vlogger, Casey has over 2 million subscribers on YouTube and a huge overall fan base, many of whom are in BBYO. Today, Casey came to talk about his most famous videos and how he persevered to get where he is now in his career. Casey came from a similar background, also being raised Jewish, so everyone who attended his session could easily relate. There wasn’t an empty seat in the house!
