The Travelling Rabbi: My African Tribe

  • R 18000


Tracing the journeys of the man who has become known as the "Travelling Rabbi," this book highlights Rabbi Moshe Silberhaft's invaluable work in Africa, from caring for the graves of the forgotten and performing wedding ceremonies to providing kosher food and religious insight to various communities. Including numerous stories about real people--some tragic, others humorous, but always fascinating--this memoir is a celebration of the resilient people he encounters and provides a permanent record of the Jewish communities and personalities who would otherwise be forgotten.
