The Abayudaya celebrated the 100th anniversary of the founding of their community June 28-30 in Nabugoye. Be’chol Lashon led a trip to Uganda to celebrate with the Abayudaya and tour the country Festivities began on Friday with Shabbat and the Bat Mitzvah of Gershom’s daughter Naavah and his niece Mia. It culminated on Sunday, when over 6,000 thousand joined in a community-wide celebration. We were delighted that members of the Ugandan Parliament, Masorti Olami, Shomrei Torah, and the Zeigler School, among others, participated in the ceremony. If you would like to support the community as it embarks on its next 100 years, please donate to the Abayudaya Microcredit Fund.
