Mount Zion Mitzvah Trip to Uganda

Benji, a youth volunteer from Minnesota, with Abayudaya children, 2011

Do your next great mitzvah in the African Diaspora! You are invited to join Cantor Rachel Stock Spilker and experienced guide Joanne ­Trangle of Kuchanga Travel in ­December 2012 to work with Uganda’s small but ­thriving ­indigenous Jewish ­community, the Abayudaya. We will be ­visiting their main village of Nabugoye, ­located in a beautiful, lush, ­mountainous area in eastern Uganda. We will be meeting and working alongside the community and ­celebrating a musical Shabbat with them. There will be safari options to follow our visit. This family-friendly trip is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! Learn more about the 2012 Uganda Trip or fill out the Uganda Trip 2012 Application Form.

Joanne will be speaking at Mount Zion on Friday November 18, 7:30 p.m.  Read more>>
