Come hear Rabbi Sizomu discuss how growing up under Idi Amin inspired him to attend rabbinic school in the United States and return to Uganda to fight anti-Semitism and foster peace by building inter-religious coalitions, creating economic development, and improving healthcare.
Be'chol Lashon partners with Rabbi Sizomu to promote a welcoming, inclusive Jewish community. Today's globalization and technology expand our range of choices and ways of identifying ourselves, especially for younger generations of Jews. Young Jews relate to a more contemporary, expansive vision of the Jewish people.
