Tour Global Jewish Life: Uganda
Hosted By: American Jewish University
The Abayudaya community in Uganda was founded by a tribal chief who converted himself and many of his followers to Judaism in 1919. One hundred years later, there are more than ten synagogues in different Ugandan villages and 5 Jewish schools, and the community continues to grow. Join Shoshana Nambi, the first Ugandan woman studying to be a rabbi, as she shares the history of her community, as well as her own family story and journey to rabbinical school.
