Meet the Jews of Uganda on this Unforgettable Journey

Join us on an unforgettable journey to Uganda this coming November to meet the Abayudaya, the Jews of Uganda, sponsored by Global Village Connect. The trip offers you an amazing experience immersed in the vibrant culture of the Abayudaya.

We will visit several Jewish schools, visit beneficiaries of our many economic development programs, and partake in Shabbat celebrations, infused with the rhythmic beats of traditional drumming, yet resonating with the familiar warmth of Jewish traditions We will have Kosher Shabbat meals with different communities and their synagogues.  If you’re Shomer Shabbat – no problem.  You can stay in the Guest House – steps away from the main synagogue.

In addition to these culturally immersive experiences, prepare for an exhilarating safari game drive, a boat ride along the majestic Nile River, and hikes amidst the scenic beauty of Sipi Falls.
