An Overdue Update

We returned from East Africa at the end of June and have been busy with school and work ever since (not to mention struggling to adjust to life in America). Adam worked at Ramah Nyack and Ramah in the Rockies (the newest Ramah camp that will open in 2010) and just started Rabbinical school at the Jewish Theological Seminary last week. I have been working at CASES, the Center for Alternative Sentencing and Employment Services, since August through the Princeton Project 55 fellowship and on the side, I am still working with the Bushikori Christian Centre on the library project!

On that note, I owe you all an update. A few weeks ago, Levert Wafula, a good friend of ours and clinical officer at the Bushikori Christian Health Centre, sent us updated photos of the library (taken by Mitch Oberstein, an AJWS volunteer).

I am excited to share these photos with you. As the library progresses and I receive photos from Uganda, I will continue to post them here.

I am also really excited to report on a fund raiser that we are holding on September 22nd at House of Brews (302 W. 51st St) from 6-10:30pm. Drink specials will be available in honor of the event. I hope to see you guys there with your friends. It will be a really fun night in support of the library.

Be in touch if you have questions about the project or suggestions regarding how we should move forward. I look forward to hearing from you and seeing you on Monday, September 22nd.
