Sessionsbeskrivning: Limmud har sammanställt en bred, kunnig och debattsugen panel – men det är DU som ställer frågorna! Utifrån Limmuddeltagarnas frågor litar vi på att vår moderator kommer att fördela ordet på ett sådant sätt att vi får ett öppet och livligt diskussionsklimat där panelister och publik bidrar i lika omfattning. Gillar du vad en panelist säger? Applådera! Om inte, räck upp handen och säg vad du tycker. Men kom ihåg den som blir långdragen, blir avbruten. Sessionen sker på engelska.
