Abayudaya High Holidays Fundraiser

Support Rabbi Gershom Sizomu’s vision for High Holidays.

Please join Rabbi Gershom Sizomu’s classmates and colleagues from the Ziegler School in raising money to buy four white Torah scroll covers, a Parochet, and a Shulchan cover for the Abayudaya Jews of Uganda.

We all know how the aesthetic of the Yamim Nora’im can increase our kavannah, and this is our chance to help Rabbi Sizomu bring that sense of import to his community. While there are plenty of needs to fund in the community, this is something that Gershom’s Ziegler colleagues can uniquely rally around. Be’chol Lashon is supporting the logistics of this effort so you can easily donate to this project.

We are seeking to raise $5,500 to cover the items and the shipping in time for a Be’chol Lashon staff member to hand deliver these items in time for Tishrei. You might decide to utilize your Discretionary Fund, your family’s personal tzedakah budget, or engage in a short-term fundraising project with your congregants. We would like to reach our goal by August 10, 2019, so the ritual items can be paid in completion in plenty of time.

Thank you for participating in this unique tzedakah opportunity.
