On this trip with Rabbi Steve Leder, there is a role for everyone from ages 5 to 95, as we embark on a partnership between Wilshire Boulevard Temple and the We charity in Kenya.

“Volunteering in Africa gave me a new understanding of my own blessed life and how much I could do to change the lives of others for the better. Africa is also the lushest, most colorful, vibrant, music- and dance-filled place on earth. A place of beautiful, welcoming people who need our help to build better lives for themselves and their children.”

—Rabbi Leder
