We open every All Around This World class, even our online classes, with “We Are Happy,” a greeting song written by Rabbi Gershom Sizomu and JJ Keki of Uganda’s Abayudaya (Jewish) community. (Learn about the Abayudaya here.) This is video I shot of Rabbi Gershom when he was in Philadelphia a few years ago. He kindly visited young children and sang songs from his community. Everyone loved “We Are Happy.”
Tomorrow we start exploring Africa country-by-country. Where do we go first? Coincidentally, Uganda.
