Kabbalistic-style Jewish communities emerge in Cote d'Ivoire.
These photos were taken by Bonita Nathan Sussman, July 2014 on a visit to Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire where she, her husband Rabbi Gerald, and Professor Marla Brettschneider met with leaders of four communities there: Beth Israel, Etz Chayyim, the Danites and the Kabbalah Center.
(The group then traveled to Cameroon to meet with old friends of Beit Yeshourun, Yaoundé-Sa'a and meet new friends in Beit Yeshourun Douala. The trip ended with visiting two communities in Gabon, Oyem and Bitam.)
These photos tell the story.
