"If you study the Torah very well and you understand it, then you are the light. You can be an example to other people who don’t know... I don’t think such calamities of bad leaders can come to suppress our faith... Judaism will prosper even in hard times. And that is the history of Judaism. If the Jewish people were very weak in Egypt, Judaism could have stopped in Egypt."
“We are conscious of our Judaism because it is our culture.”
"I saw our synagogues being locked up, completely. And I didn’t see any of our members going to public services like we use to before Idi Amin... And not only that, but we began having services in hiding. Some of the congregants organized themselves in the bedrooms of individual people. Others were seen in the caves, like the old caves and so they would come by there to have their services – like Shabbat services. So, the situation was like, not so conducive to the Jewish people."
