Rabbi Gershom Sizomu, chief rabbi of Uganda, visited our seventh grade this week as a guest speaker. A Be'chol Lashon Rabbinic Fellow, Rabbi Sizomu makes frequent visits to the United States as an ambassador for the Abayudaya ("People of Judah") Jewish community. As part of the Tzedek Project's guest speaker series—which has also seen representatives from Project Homeless Connect, Shalom Bayit, Jewish Coalition for Literacy, and Urban Adamah, among others—Rabbi Sizomu met with the seventh grade students to advocate for efforts to build a new synagogue complex in his community. This synagogue will include a school, child care center, kitchen, and community center. While showing photos of his community, Rabbi Sizomu explained that all Jewish homes in the community have Jewish symbols in the windows, "so we are reminded to look out with a Jewish point of view."
