[livejournal.com profile] asher63 wrote a few months ago about visiting the Jewish community in Uganda. I was fascinated by the story then, so was really interested when this showed up in my news feed at work:

How very cool is this? What a great story this close to Hanukah, too! Mazal tov!

Given all the other human rights issues in Uganda at the moment, it warmed my heart to see one group making headway.

I just heard of this group, too. At first I was thinking they were one of the Lost Tribes, like the Ethiopian Jews etc, but it doesn't look like they are. Still really cool to learn about them though!
