Audiences will learn about the fascinating history of the Lemba community and their current re-connection with worldwide Judaism. You may remember the news that DNA research showed the “Cohen” priestly gene among the Lemba, substantiating their oral history that they are descended from ancient Israel. After generations of practicing Judaism in secrecy, the Lemba are now reconnecting with the Jewish world.

Modreck Maeresera has taken a leadership role in this “Jewish renaissance” of his ancient community. He will provide an insider’s view of the history and practice of the Lemba Jews — their story of perseverance and commitment to Judaism over hundreds of years, as well as recent developments in the community.
