ON THIS SPIRITUAL JOURNEY, WE WILL VISIT EASTERN UGANDA TO LEARN ABOUT THE ABAYUDAYA COMMUNITY IN MBALE AND GAIN INSIGHT INTO GLOBAL JEWISH OBSERVANCE.
Our time in Mbale will include an unforgettable Shabbat with Rabbi Gershom Sizomu at the new Stern Synagogue in Nabugoye Hill, a visit to the Delicious Peace Coffee Cooperative, tours of Hadassah Primary School and Semei Kakungulu High School, and a volunteer Mitzvah Day to help with community projects and deepen our relationship with our Ugandan family.
The second half of our trip will take us into neighboring Kenya to behold the East African landscape and stunning wildlife. Our second Shabbat will be in Nairobi, a bustling cosmopolitan area, where we will get a glimpse into city life. The accommodations in both Uganda and Kenya are respected upscale properties, and provide all needed amenities such as delicious Western-style meals, WiFi, ensuite baths with hot running water and toilets, comfy beds, cocktails, door-to-door transportation and unparalleled African hospitality.
