Today's Jewish Song of The Day

The Abayaudaya are a group of Ugandans who started practicing Judaism as they understood it around 1919 under the leadership of Semei Kakungulu and evolved into a full fledged community that made contact with Jews elsewhere in the world. Eventually they went through a conversion under non orthodox supervision, creating divisive issues in Jewish law. Whatever those issues might be, they suffered terribly for their faith, enduring murderous attacks and forced conversions to Christianity and Islam. I admire them greatly for their steadfastness in faith. My Article back in 2009 cites source material about them. Click here to read about and listen to the Abayudaya.
