In the Spirit of Sankofa,




... My interest primarily rests with the synagogue, El Ghriba; made from Moorish architectural design.

The El Ghriba synagogue, home to most of Tunisia's Jews, is built on the site of a Jewish temple that is believed to date back almost 1,900 years.

DJERBA, Tunisia (Reuters) - Africa's oldest synagogue is playing host to that rarity in the Arab world - a religious gathering of hundreds of Jews drawn from Europe and Israel.
Guarded by armed Tunisian police, Jewish revelers chant and dance in a three-day pilgrimage to theEl Ghriba synagogue at an island resort 500 km south of Tunis.
In 2011, after the uprising that toppled former president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, the annual celebration was canceled and in 2012 only a few dozen Jews attended out of fear of possible attacks by hardline Islamists.

The Jews seemed to have settled all over the world.

Bridgetown Jewish Synagogue

One of the Barbados.org's "Seven Wonders Of Barbados!"
There is currently one synagogue situated in Bridgetown. Built in the 17th century (1654) it was destroyed by hurricane in 1831, was rebuilt, fell into disrepair and was sold in 1929.
In 1983, it was bought back by the Jewish community and was restored to its present state with its beautiful Gothic arches, and is now a Barbados National Trust protected building and an active synagogue. Located next to the synagogue is the Nidhe Israel Museum.
About 300 Jewish people of Recife, Brazil, persecuted by the Dutch, settled in Barbados in the 1660's. Skilled in the sugar industry, they quickly introduced the crop and passed on their skills in cultivation and production to the Barbados land owners.
With their help Barbados went on to become one of the world's majorsugar producers.
The synagogue is located within the World Heritage Site - Historic Bridgetown and Its Garrison.

Yes Ma'am sister dunwiddat, the Bible is a book of prophecy:


Ezekiel 11:17-20

King James Version (KJV)
17 Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord God; I will even gather you from the people, and assemble you out of the countries where ye have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel.
18 And they shall come thither, and they shall take away all the detestable things thereof and all the abominations thereof from thence.
19 And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh:
20 That they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine ordinances, and do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God.


Our concern with this however is determining just who God's chosen people are that have been scattered.

And in my estimation, dark skinned African people represent the majority of those suffering in the diaspora; contrary to what has been taught, excluding blacks from prophecy.


Peace In,

Why do Jews go here every year? What holy significance does it hold?

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl
