Greetings from Côte d’Ivoire, West Africa!

As the Sub-Saharan African Jewish Conference begins, we wanted to share the short video and photo below to show the enthusiasm and excitement as we come together for this historic event bringing Jewish communities from 10 countries across Africa.


The program includes skill transfer classes on many interesting topics including burial practices and kosher laws as well as sessions on creating a Sub-Saharan African Jewish Alliance and increasing social media presence.


We have done lots of learning… and dancing so far. We are looking forward to a meaningful Shabbat and Chanukah celebration to conclude the conference.


The education and relationships being formed here will make a lasting impact on these Jewish communities for many years to come.
