The Kippot Mitzvah Project, an initiative has the potential to raise tens of thousands of dollars for the Hadassah Primary School and positively impact the lives and futures of hundreds of Jewish children in Uganda.

The Federation of Jewish Men’s Clubs (FJMC) is proud to introduce the Abayudaya Kippot Mitzvah Project, an initiative has the potential to raise tens of thousands of dollars for the Hadassah Primary School and positively impact the lives and futures of hundreds of Jewish children in Uganda. I ask you all to seriously consider publicizing this initiative to your synagogue communities and social circles.

The FJMC has worked with the Abayudaya community in Mbale, Uganda since 2015. By now, many active FJMC members have either met the Hadassah Primary School director, Aaron Moses z”l, at the Miami or DC conventions or you have heard us speak about the community and the importance of our support for the Abayudaya Men’s Club and the Hadassah Primary School.

Always on the lookout for new, creative ways to support the Abayudaya, the FJMC has created a Powerpoint presentation to explain how our children can affect change in Mbale through their b’nai mitzvah projects. By executing this proposed mitzvah project, they will learn to care for Jews around the world and become empowered to make a real difference. Please share information with your clergy, religious school directors, b’nai mitzvah coordinators, club members, and even friends both within and outside of the Conservative movement.

It is incumbent upon all Jews to care for each other. This project will show the Abayudaya that they are not forgotten and that they are an important part of Am Yisrael. Our children will benefit from learning about this community and caring for Jews in need. Please email David Freiman at davidafreiman@gmail.com with any questions about this project. I look forward to the FJMC continuing its support of the Abayudaya for years to come.
