Located along the border perimeter between Agor and FESTAC area in Lagos, our growing Jewish community has remained steadfast on the path of Judaism. And with good degree of exposure to the international Jewish World, our prayer services and festivals are observed following the halacha rules and standards. Finding the right pat after so many years ago, the leadership of the synagogue has truly come a long way, leading on the forefront for the recognition and practice of Judaism in Nigeria. ADAT YISRAEL SYNAGOGUE is notably the first ever originally built place of Jewish worship in Lagos State. Construction on site began early in 2010, and the building was eventually completed with a groundbreaking celebration of Erev Passover on the 18th of April 2011.

My brief bio:
I have made my residence in New York, but have traveled back and forth to Nigeria over 20 times in the past few years. There is a total love affair that myself and the congregants of Temple Adat Yisrael share together and will continue to share.
I am an ordained rabbi as well as hold numerious Doctoral degree in the feild of computers, engineering, and electronics. But my true calling is in the study of Torah.
