Beth Yeshourun is a warm and welcoming Jewish community located in Cameroon, Africa, in a little town called SAA which is about one hour by car far from Yaounde (the capital city).

Isolated and Self-taught for many years, we recently got our isolation broken thanks to Kulanu whose two volunteers (Rabbi Gerald and Rabbanit Bonita Sussmans of the Synagogue Temple Emmanuel of New-York) visited us last summer.

We are dedicated to more engaged Jewish observance, to the love of Israel, the homeland of the Jews and We try to develop and maintain a spiritualy vibrant and mutually supportive community.

A word from the leader

Thank you for taking some time to visit our website.

My goal for Beth Yeshourun is to help building a sacred and vibrant community, as well as a prosper community that will contribute to Tikkun olam global efforts and to Make shine Judaism in Africa.

I adress a word of gratitude to Kulanu a very great hearted organization for the work it does to help us and to help many other Jewish communities around the world. I also say thank you to Rabbi Gerald and Rabbanit Bonita Sussman of Temple Emmanuel, in Staten Island, New-york who visited us last summer and are working together with Kulanu to open doors for us in the world's Jewish community.

Here in Beth Yeshourun, we root ourselves in Torah and share the love of Judaism through learning, practice and prayer. We also seek ways large and small to make our world a better place for all its people. I believe that task is the ultimate purpose of Judaism.
