Several Jewish men from Sefwi Wiawso, Ghana recount stories of The House of Israel community and its return to ancestral Judaic beliefs and practices.

DNAWORKS was funded by the U.S. Embassy in Ghana to lead an oral history project with the Jewish community, some 200 strong, in Sefwi Wiawso in the Western Region of Ghana about 120 miles from Accra.  Adam and Daniel spent Purim with the community, their first celebration of this holiday, led a Purim spiel, and taught songs. They also spent Passover with the community and three Shabbatot. Adam is currently editing a film about this community; their experiences there will serve as a jumping-off point for DNAWORKS’ on-going dialogue and creative work about Jews of color and of African heritage.
