Meet the Abayudaya: Songs and Stories from Uganda’s Jewish Community
Join Rabbi Gershom Sizomu and JJ Keki of Uganda’s Abayudaya Jewish community in this interactive session for children and families. Music is central to the Abayudaya’s sense of community, family and faith. Their rich choral traditions and unique settings of familiar Jewish songs and prayers are a revelation, reflecting a uniquely African practice of Judaism. Sizomu and Keki will share stories and songs from Ugandan-Jewish culture, teaching new melodies to traditional songs you already know and love. Don't miss this truly special event, a chance for the whole family to learn together about a little-known Jewish community steeped in joy and tradition.
