I’d like to let you know about an exciting travel opportunity to Uganda! Whether you desire to deepen your understanding of Jewish life in Africa, want to spend time with one of the communities Kulanu supports, or are just in need of a vacation, this is a fantastic trip you can’t pass up!
“Jewish Life in Uganda Mitzvah Tour & Wildlife Safari” will take place January 9-24, 2011. Join this fabulous small group eco-tour, now in its eighth year. Meet the Jewish Community of Uganda! Treat your family to a real African safari featuring wild elephants, hippos and crocs. Spend shabbat in an African village synagogue. Visit Kulanu-supported sustainable development projects including two Abayudaya schools that feed and educate 700 students each day. Share your skills and do mitzvah work!
This is an amazing Jewish experience for individuals or for the whole family! Laura Wetzler, Kulanu’s Uganda Coordinator, will be leading the trip. Barbara Vinick, a Kulanu Board Member, will be on the tour. My husband, Ken Klein, and I will also be with you for much of your visit!
I hope to see you there!
Harriet Bograd, President
