[I]t has been one of the greatest honors in my life to have hosted a rabbi. . . . We are poor, but very happy because we have Torah. In a very short time the rabbi has helped us in educating our children, young people and adults, and we have benefitted greatly from his visit. . . . The Rabbi is very serious about the study of Torah, he keeps the men very busy, and has taught us women lessons.
The writer is a member of the tiny Jewish community in El Salvador (Central America). With about 60 Jewish families in the mainstream community and another 260 people in more remote areas, the thirst for a Jewish life here is strong.
We learned about this group from Harriet Bograd, who heads Kulanu a small, U.S.-based organization, managed almost exclusively by volunteers, devoted to the discovery and welfare of remote and often unknown Jewish communities world-wide.
Kulanu’s reach extends far and wide, and with this meaningful return on our investment, we are pleased to continue to underwrite Rabbi Rehberg’s efforts.
