Sons of Congo: Making a Difference in our World, One Person at a Time

Join Ahavat Torah for a service themed around Sons of Congo! Please RSVP at (310) 362-1111.

Program:

  • 9:00AM – Deut. 21:10-11
  • 10 – 12:00PM- Theme Integrated into Service
  • 11:00AM – Pastor Kasereka Kasomo
  • 12:15-1:15PM – Potluck Dairy Lunch
  • 1:30 – 3:00PM – Program with Vaughan Meyer, JWW Board Member, Pastor Kasereka Kasomo of the African Christian Community Church, and Greg Metzger, Ahavat Torah’s Rabbinical Intern.

Sons of Congo is a men’s mentorship program. This program is aimed at creating a social change movement for the protection of women in the Congo. Sons of Congo provides a curriculum that draws on biblical lessons to demonstrate how women should be valued and respected.

We will be looking deeply into biblical texts and Judeo-Christian religion and traditions to explore the following questions:

  • Can people really change?
  • Can a culture of violence against women become a culture of value, respect and guardianship?
  • Can our religious teachings make an impact?
  • How can I be a part of this global healing movement?

All are welcome!

We are constantly inspired by their stories, representative of the hundreds of Congo’s men and most vulnerable children who have been transformed with Esther and Camille’s commitment, perseverance, and tremendous faith. It has been an honor to call them our partners and our friends. We can’t wait till you can call them that as well.
