"I did not find the world desolate when I entered it. My fathers planted for me before I arrived, so I plant for those who come after me.” TALMUD
In our June bulletin we reported on the herculean effort of Joy Perla and Jim Stern, along with so many other members of our religious school, social action committee and general community to gather and ship a pallet-load of over 600 unused siddurim, machzorim, chumashim and children’s books to the Abayudaya community in Mbale, Uganda. According to Jim, “It was a four-month odyssey worthy of Homer (OK, Jonah if we need an Israelite parallel). Through donations from the Ernest Rothschild Educational fund, Sisterhood, Men’s Club and the children of our Religious School these boxes travelled from Roslyn to Linden, NJ to Dubai (yes, Dubai of all places) to Mombasa, Kenya to Kampala, Uganda and finally, to the remote village of Mbale – with delays and snags at almost every juncture.” In August, the books were received. According to Rabbi Moses Sebagabo, the spiritual leader of the Namanyonyi synagogue, “truly, this is a dream come true. When we met [Joy Perla] in Israel, I did not think that something like this will happen. Without your combined efforts, we would not get these wonderful gifts. I send a BIG THANK YOU to all those good friends who managed to make this possible.” Clip of books being received can be viewed by clicking here.
