Kulanu is thrilled to announce that this fall’s Abayudaya speaking tour – running from October 23 to November 24, 2014 – will feature young activist Shoshanna Nambi. In 2013, Shoshanna was the first Jewish woman to represent the Abayudaya community on this annual Kulanu-organized tour; one host described Ms. Nambi’s presentation as “heart-warming and educational… truly unforgettable.”

We are requesting your help in filling this year’s tour calendar. Share this announcement with decision-makers in your community (rabbi or synagogue president, leader of your social action group, university department heads, etc) and encourage them to get involved. And if you are a decision-maker, please click here!

A product of the high school that Kulanu helps to sustain, Shoshanna is among the first Abayudaya women to graduate from university. As a former youth leader, an active Jewish learner and participant in her congregation, as well as a mother and an administrator in organizations that address women’s and community health issues, Shoshanna will present a fresh and unique perspective on the roles of women in the Abayudaya community and the challenges they face.
