About the Event

Next summer, Temple Aliyah and Shomrei Torah are delighted to partner on a joint trip to visit the Abayudaya community in Uganda for a special spiritual mission to Africa.  Spearheaded by our friend and colleague, Cantor Mindy Harris, The 15-day tour will begin in Uganda, and end in Kenya with some time for sightseeing. The group will have the opportunity to meet with our friend, Rabbi Gershom Sizomu, for an update on the Jewish community and his new work as a member of the Ugandan Parliament.  The trip should be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and Shabbat in Mbale, the Ugandan village, should be an unforgettable event, with lots of music and ruach.   

On Sunday, Nov 12th, Rabbi Camras and Hazzan Stein will speak about their previous experiences in Uganda, and the importance of outreach to this Jewish community. Cantor Mindy will outline the tour logistics and answer questions about registration.  Join us on Sunday, November 12th at 10:30 at Temple Aliyah for a trip Info Session.  More information will be available at eastafricaspiritualjourney.com, and we will have info also on our synagogue website with trip and registration info.  Sunday, November 12th is the Info Session.
