Ugandan Birthright visitors rejoice with Torah at the Western Wall

Singing and dancing jubilantly to the beat of a drum, some 40 young men and women from the Abayudaya Jewish community in Uganda took party in a dedication ceremony for a Torah scroll at the Western Wall on Monday morning. The group paraded the Torah scroll the short distance from the Dung Gate to the egalitarian prayer section of the Western Wall by Robinson's Arch, and then conducted the morning prayer service and read from the Torah which has been donated to the Masorti Movement in Israel by the Temple Beth Am Conservative synagogue in Margate, Florida.
