Join us for an inspiring lecture about the vibrant, emerging Jewish community of Cameroon.
Meet Serge Etele, spiritual leader of the Beth Yeshourun community that began embracing Judaism 13 years ago by educating themselves online. In 2009, Etele contacted rabbis and Jewish organizations in Europe and the US to pursue his community’s desire to become Jewish. Today, they seeks formal conversion and Etele dreams of becoming an ordained rabbi to better serve the community’s educational and spiritual needs. This is the first visit by a member of Beth Yeshouroun to an established Jewish community.
Serge Etele is self-educated in Judaism, Hebrew and Jewish liturgy. He is also a cocoa farmer and human rights activist in Cameroon.
Gerald Sussman is Rabbi of Temple Emanu-El in Staten Island, president of the Jewish Historical Society of Staten Island, and a leader of interfaith efforts to care for those in need. With his wife Bonita, Rabbi Sussman traveled to Cameroon to teach and consult with the emerging Beth Yeshourun Jewish community.
Presented with Kulanu.
