Rabbi Gerald Sussman, who visited the Cameroon Jewish community for Kulanu in 2010, wrote:
I would like to invite you to meet a young man who represents an astonishing new phenomenon in the history of the Jewish people and may one day emerge as a truly outstanding Jewish leader. His name is Serge Etele and he is one of the leaders of an emerging Jewish community in the African nation of Cameroon. His story of how his community, formerly Christians, discovered and embraced traditional Judaism, is a truly inspring and encouraging one. It is also part of a turning towards Judaism in many parts of the world which will have profound implications for the Jewish future.
Kulanu is hosting Serge Etele of the Beth Yeshourun community of Cameroon in the United States for the first time this coming February and March. On this ground-breaking speaking tour, audiences will learn about this emerging community practicing Judaism in the heart of Africa.
The tour will run from February 23-March 21, 2012. Click here for details and to find out how you can invite Serge to visit your community. Book an event near you now, or pass this on to friends who may be interested!
