I am so excited to be traveling to Harare, Zimbabwe for 5 months to help the Lemba community, and I am inviting you to help support them! 

The Lemba are a group of isolated Jews who were cut off from mainstream Judaism for over 1,000 years. They maintained Jewish practices and customs in secret and only recently began practicing openly. The total Lemba population of Zimbabwe has been estimated at 100,000 with even more living in South Africa. 

Kulanu has been helping the Lemba with two main missions: 

1. Reinvigorating their ancient faith

2. Connecting them with modern Judaism

I will be working with the Lemba to come closer to achieving these goals by teaching them more about traditional Judaism, including holidays, liturgy, and basic Hebrew. 

Any contributions would be incredibly useful in helping this communty. Please click "Make a Donation" in the top right corner to help out!
