Help Rabbi Tovia Singer Sustain Shul in Jakarta, Indonesia
For the past two years, I have led a revolutionary outreach program and a vibrant synagogue, Beit Torat Chaim, in the heart of Indonesia. Our renowned Jakarta congregation serves Jews who hid their Jewish identity for many years. Due to recent political changes, Indonesian Jews no longer have to keep their heritage a secret. For the first time, the descendants of Peruvian and Dutch Jews can embrace the beauty of their rich heritage. My tireless work here marks the stunning revival of Jewish life in the world’s fourth largest country. No rabbinic authority served this country for centuries. Our congregation does not own property. We rent a secure apartment which serves as our vibrant Jewish center for Torah life. Before April 22nd, 2016 I must renew this rental contract. This campaign is devoted to raising the funds necessary to sustain this growing congregation for the coming year.
