Welcoming the Muzungu-Mbonigaba Family

October 21 2018, 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Members of all ages from Society Hill Synagogue and Beth Zion-Beth Israel are invited to Society Hill Synagogue, 418 Spruce Street, Philadelphia, to meet the immigrant family from the Congo that we have “adopted” through HIAS Pennsylvania, the Muzungu-Mbonigaba Family. Our celebration will include lots of time for schmoozing, a delicious spread of homemade goodies, and the wonderful music of Rabbi Yosef Goldman and Hazzan Jessi Roemer.

Please consider bringing appetizer and/or desserts.  Make all things finger food so that it is easier to serve.  To sign up to bring food, please contact Rosalie Kurz. To RSVP for the event, contact Phyllis Denbo.

We are so excited to get to know Suzana Mbonigaba and Merthus Muzungu, and four of their five children, ranging in age from four to thirteen (they also have a son who is away at college). In the coming months there will be many opportunities for BZBI members to help out with this and other things. To learn more about the family and the things that BZBI and SHS will provide, please reference our introduction to the family on the Shofar blog.
