The Abayudaya Jewish community in Ugandan was found by a tribal chief who converted himself and his followers in 1919. The 100 year old community has grown to include three Jewish day schools and nine synagogues.
At a virtual event hosted by Qesher, Shoshana Nambi grew up in Uganda’s Abayudaya Jewish community. She graduated in BBA at Kampala University before spending two years studying in Israel. Now she serves as a Student Rabbi for North Fork Reform Synagogue, New York.
Nambi will discuss the community of Abayudaya and their journey to Judaism as well her journey to rabbinical school in Israel. She will also discuss her experience as a Ugandan Jew in Israel and the United States.
10% of the profits will be donated to the Abayudaya College Scholarship, which has raised and administered funds to send more than 40 students to colleges and universities in Uganda since 2001.
