“The Jews of Uganda – Introducing the Abayudaya”
Sponsor Congregation Adath Jeshurun
Type of Event Education
Description The Abayudaya (People of Judah) of Uganda are a small community, cut off for centuries from mainstream Judaism, who have maintained their pride and strong Jewish traditions, among them, Shabbat and Kashrut. AJ will welcome Mr. Aaron Kintu Moses, one of the key leaders of the Abayudaya Community, to our congregation. Mr. Moses is a great speaker and experienced educator. He is the community’s Director of Education, and his brother is studying for the rabbinate in Los Angeles. Mr. Moses will appear as part of a national speaking tour sponsored by Kulanu, a non-profit organization that works on behalf of isolated and emerging Jewish communities in the world. His visit with us is made possible by a generous gift from Judy Featherman and Lionel Lieberman.
