How You Can Support the Sefwi Jewish Community

Purchase a Challah Cover

A vibrant piece for any Shabbat table, these colourful challah covers are crafted with materials from the local market and made right in the community's tailor shop. They're a unique and meaningful gift and they are an essential part of the community’s economic development. Purchase a cover or learn more by visiting the Tailor Shop in the Interactive Village.

Send Donated Items

Shipping donated items to the community is extremely helpful! Jewish or Kosher items are especially scarce. Here are some especially useful things you can send to the community:

  • Used smartphones, laptops and tablets
  • Jewish items for Shabbat or holidays like Havdalah Candles, holiday prayer books (with English translation), Passover Haggadahs (easy reading preferred for the children)
  • Kosher products (e.g. matza, kosher wine/grape juice)

To arrange the donation, get in touch with Owusu Ansah Michael, Community Deputy Secretary at tifferethisraelghana.wiawso@yahoo.com

How to Visit the Sefwi Jewish Community

If you are heading to Ghana and want to arrange a visit to the Sefwi Wiawso community, they can host you in their awesome guesthouse and provide you with yummy meals and great company.

Arrange your visit by getting in touch with Owusu Ansah Michael, Community Deputy Secretary at tifferethisraelghana.wiawso@yahoo.com.

We suggest providing a donation of $30/night or more for your stay.
