Summary
Who would expect to find Jews in Ghana? Not Gabrielle Zilkha, for sure. But when she volunteered to work in Africa and found herself a lone Canadian Jew awash in a sea of Christians as the Jewish New Year approached, that's exactly what happened. In remote Sefwi Wiawso, Ghana, she made a stunning connection with a group of people, dedicated and devout, who practiced special rites including circumcision and keeping Kosher dietarey laws and had done so for centuries. Only recently had they discovered that the religion they have been practicing for centuries is Judaism
