Limmud (learning) is a Jewish education conference that's been going on in England for the past 30 years, with spinoff versions taking place in more than 24 countries on six continents.
Taking their inspiration from the Limmud festival, a grassroots group of Jewish young adults in Montreal created a version that they named LE MOOD, taking a very modern approach to explore Jewish life as they define it.
To generate interest in last year's conference, the LE MOOD organizers produced a short video purporting to show a modern view of how Eve and Adam met. You'll recognize the basic characters in the story, but probably not the clothes they're wearing, or Cain and Abel's, the cafe where they tell some of their friends about their first meeting in a garden.
