Telshe, Bin Laden, and the Congo

| |

My day job in Jewish advocacy makes it easier for me than for most to implement the Hirschian ideal of bringing Torah to every profession, every occupation, every nook and cranny of the globe. I am forever meeting interesting people from outside the Jewish community to whom I must somehow communicate Jewish ideals. Still, some of the situations that HKBH throws my way are breathtaking in the worlds they weave together. This week, it was Telshe and the Congo.

Growing up in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ely Shabani Katembo saw savagery that would suck the life force out of others. His country is the single richest on earth when measured by its mineral wealth – but that has been its greatest curse.
