In the 100th year of the Jewish people of Uganda, called Abayudaya, the Cantors Assembly ventured on a mission there to build a sacred bridge of peoplehood and to explore the unique aspects and commonalities of our musical heritages. Additionally, several cantors also visited the emerging Abayudaya community in Kenya.
To retell our story every year, Jews gather on Passover and read from the Haggadah, which literally means “the telling.” It tells of our journeys, our struggles, and our ultimate redemption through the words of Torah. What a perfect vehicle for telling the story of the Abayudaya.
This Haggadah is but one of many end results of our mission, meant to enhance the experience of Jewish families at their Pesach Sedarim. This is a beta version, available to anyone who wishes to download and utilize this for a suggested donation of only $18. All proceeds from the Haggadah will go to directly benefit the Abayudaya communities, and may be used for such priorities as medicine, education, agriculture, direct food relief and much more.
Use it virtually: The complete text of the Haggadah, full of pictures, audio, video, recipes and so much more is ideal for your virtual seder but can also be downloaded and printed. (Note: the Haggadah PDF linked here does not include the complete Haggadah text. However, it does contain embedded links to access the complete text of the Haggadah.)
We are pleased to present three preview audio files, recorded during the Cantors Assembly Abayudaya Solidarity Mission.
