Sukkot is Shoshi’s favorite Jewish holiday. She and her brothers love to decorate their Sukkah, the temporary hut, where her family will celebrate. But who will win the Ugandan Abayudaya community’s annual Sukkah contest? While only one Sukkah can be the best, everybody wins when neighbors work together. Author Shoshana Nambi will read The Very Best Sukkah: A Story from Uganda, followed by a Q&A.
Shoshana Nambi grew up in Mbale, Uganda’s Abayudaya Jewish community, learning Hebrew at the nearby synagogue and teaching songs and the Torah portion to young children. In 2019, she and her 12-year-old daughter, Emunah, moved to NYC. Shoshana is now a third-year rabbinical student on her way to becoming the first female rabbi from her community in Uganda. The Very Best Sukkah: A Story from Uganda is her first book.
