Masorti Olami and Denver Jewish Day School launch Abayudaya Pesach Campaign
April 1st, 2024

Current senior students Maya Friedlander, Mia Wexler, and Megan Coughlan are generously fundraising money for matzah, wine and other Passover essentials for the Abayudaya Jewish communities in Uganda and Kenya, in collaboration with Masorti Olami.

The Abayudaya (Luganda word for people of Judah) community is comprised of over 2,500 members spread among 11 villages and centers across eastern Uganda and northern Kenya. Learn more about them at

Maya Friedlander, who reached out to Masorti Olami to initiate this partnership, has been researching various Jewish communities throughout the world, and felt that for Passover her community in Colorado could contribute to the larger Jewish society - and donate money towards goods that would be used to buy Passover items for the Abayudaya communities across Uganda.

Through Masorti Olami, we have been able to secure a supplier for matzah and wine, among other products, but we need your help.

To provide the Masorti/Conservative communities with wine and matzah for the week, including taxes and travel to and from Kenya to transport the cases, we need to raise approximately $5,000.

Please consider giving generously to this amazing initiative, and help our Abayudaya communities celebrate Passover to its fullest.

To support Masorti/Conservative communities and projects for the continuation of our Jewish people and values from generation to generation.
