Creating the perfect schedule at Limmud AZ

The fifth annual Limmud AZ is coming up fast. You have bought your ticket (if not, do so now and use code Jew PHX for $5 off your ticket!) and are starting to look over the schedule to figure out what sessions you want to attend. Only problem is that the 54 different sessions can seem a bit overwhelming. How do you choose which one to attend? Especially since they all sound interesting and exciting.

Well, I thought I would share some sample schedules to get you excited and possibly help you narrow down your choices. I still don't know exactly which ones I will attend, and if you want more options and to create your own perfect schedule, I urge you to spend time playing around with the Limmud AZ schedule of sessions here. So without further adieu, a few sample schedules for you to consider.
