Come hear the music of the Abayudaya Jewish Community in Uganda. Hear their unique tunes and learn more about this 100 year old Jewish Community. Rabbi Gershom Sizumo will sing for us and with us. Rabbi Sizomu is the leader of almost 2000 Jews living in rural village in Eastern Uganda. He was ordained at the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies at the American Jewish University in Los Angeles. He returned to Uganda in 2008 as the first native-born black rabbi in Sub-Saharan Africa and opened a Yeshiva to train African teacher and rabbis to serve their ancient and emerging Jewish communities. In 2016 he became the first Jew ever elected to Uganda's Parliament where he serves today. He is dynamic, inspiring and entertaining! You won't want to miss him. The program will be at Temple Judea, 24512 Moulton Pkwy, Laguna Woods CA 92637. Tickets are $10 adult and $5 under age 11.

Sponsor: Temple Judea funded in partnership with the Albert Weissman and Rhoda Yvette Weissman Arts Endowment Fund.
