Kulanu-Lemba 2013 Speaking Tour Starts In One Week!

Kulanu is delighted to introduce Modreck Zvakavapano Maeresera and the Lemba Jews of Zimbabwe to Jewish communities in the U.S., with public talks scheduled in nine cities from February 7 to March 2, 2013, and live broadcasts to six other sites. See list below to find a Kulanu-Lemba event near you! Be sure to check the tour calendar for registration details.

Modreck Maeresera, a rising leader among the Lemba, will be speaking about the fascinating history and traditions of his Jewish community at synagogues and other venues in New York, Illinois, Texas, Florida, Massachusetts, and Maryland; his first presentation will also be broadcast live at locations in Arizona, Illinois, New Jersey, and Ontario (see below, click on “read more” or click here for more).

We hope you’ll attend one of these events – and tell your family and friends if Mr Maeresera is coming to their community!
