An overseas honor for a local rabbi


Recently a guest house in Abuja was named by Tikvat Israel in honor of Rabbi Wayne Franklin of Temple Emanu-El in Providence. The house is a place for overseas visitors to the synagogue who come to teach Judaism. Rabbi Franklin has taught members of the synagogue there via Skype and WhatsApp

The guest house was financed in large part by members of Temple Emanu-El, according to William F.S. Miles, who has written a book about the Jews of Nigeria.
