The Masorti Movement of Israel, Masorti Olami and Achvah: The Partnership for Abayudaya Rights, conducted an interview with Yosef Kibita, ambassador for Israel, the Jewish People, and the Abayudaya community in Uganda.

The session, ably moderated by Rabbi Andy Sacks, director of the Rabbinical Assembly of Israel and the Religious Affairs Bureau, gave many of us the first opportunity to hear directly from Yosef.  What a great experience. Yosef is thoughtful, engaging, and a wonderful representative of the Abayudaya.

We’re so glad we had the  opportunity to hear Yosef’s life story — how he came to love Israel, to live there, to study there, to learn to not (yet) love falafel, and to seek Israeli citizenship.
