Ever wanted to visit Jewish areas of the world that are some of the most remote parts to reach? Well, Jewish organisation Kulanu offers an essential website for any Jew who wants to travel the globe and seek out the rich diversity of Jewish people and culture.
This not-for-profit group provides a valuable way for Jews to learn more about other Jews around the world and often organises trips.
Who could have ever imagined spending a shabbat in Uganda? Well in January 2006, a two week tour will be taking place. The trip will show the Abayudaya Jews and how they live their life as well as experiencing other sites and sounds of Uganda.
In November, they will be going to India to learn more about Jewish life there.
The website is a great resource for anyone who wants to know more about Jewish life than what you normally read or see.
It's rather like a good Lonely Planet or Rough Guide. The information is all there with hints and tips from various contributors as well as links to other sites that offer information on diverse Jewish communities.
Want to read up on Jewish life in Costa Rica or Cuba? Maybe you fancy discovering Jewish roots in Burma or Cape Verde in the west coast of Africa?
Kulanu provides a good starting point to begin your quest.
As a people who are scattered across the world, Kulanu serves as a great resource to bring Jews together.
