This year CHJ once again collaborates with three area synagogues to bring another interesting program. This time featuring Elysha Netsarh of the emerging Madagascar Jewish community.
Please join us in welcoming Elysha Netsarh on her first trip to North America. Her multi-media presentation will include videos of the celebration of the conversions of members of the Madagascar Jewish community and the joyous Jewish weddings that followed. Through fabulous pictures and music that will accompany her presentation, audiences will learn about the fascinating little-known country of Madagascar, populated by a warm vibrant people challenged by poverty, and home to an emerging Jewish community that will continue to grow and thrive with our recognition.
A non-profit, 501(c)3 organization based in New York City, Kulanu (Hebrew for “all of us”) works around the world to support isolated and emerging Jewish communities who wish to learn more about Judaism and (re-)connect with the wider Jewish community.
NOTE: We would like to take a photo of attending CHJer together with Elysha and Harriet Bograd, president of Kulanu. Please stay long enough after the talk to participate.
It is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
