Early Jewish Settlement in Zambia
By: Elliam Moses Mulenga
About the Book
The book is about Jewish immigrants who arrived in Southern Africa to Northern Rhodesia (Zambia) from Europe between the late 18th and early 19th centuries.
Gripped with the idea of a future from tyranny and persecution through energy, ingenuity and hard work, they found their way and had an opportunity to practise a profession which was denied to them in Eastern Europe. Jewish immigrants in Africa worked as traders, store owners and cattle drivers. Despite the odds, they made a mark in commerce, industry, civil and political fields which are recognised here.
This book traces the Jewish religion’s spirit, culture and Zionist beliefs, as they have not forgotten Israel as their homeland.
