4th Annual David Bear Memorial Interfaith Lecture Series
Join the Des Moines Area Religious Council for the 4th Annual David Bear Memorial Interfaith Lecture Series on November 11 at 7pm, Tifereth Israel Synagogue. This year we will be hearing from Rabbi Gershom Sizomu on "The Abayudaya Jews of Uganda: A Community History and Current Projects." 

Rabbi Gershom Sizomu is the chief rabbi of Uganda, and the first native-born black rabbi in Sub-Saharan Africa. He serves the Abayudaya, a Jewish community. The lecture is open to the public and there is no cost to attend.

This lecture is made possible by a legacy left by David Bear, a prominent Des Moines engineer and businessman for more than 50 years. A member and leader at Tifereth Israel Synagogue, he was a pioneer in breaking down barriers among people of all faiths. In addition to his many other professional and community affiliations, he served as president of the Des Moines Area Religious Council in 1992, and was president of the DMARC Foundation in 1989 and 1990. He continued to serve as a board member of the Foundation until his death in the spring of 2010. In his honor, the Bear family has established the David Bear Memorial Interfaith Lecture Series.
