The Jews of Ethiopia: Being Black, Jewish and Israeli

Sun June 19 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm CEST

Join us for a dynamic interactive journey through the story of the Ethiopian Jews and their immigration of to Israel.

The story of the exodus of Ethiopian Jews to Israel is one of the most moving historical events of the Jewish people. Although it happened recently, most Israelis and Diaspora Jewry are not aware of the difficulties and challenges encountered by Ethiopian Jews in their trek to reach Israel. In this session we will embark on a journey from Ethiopia to Israel and learn about the Jewish Ethiopian community’s way of life and traditions. By engaging through a personal Aliyah story, we will learn about the identity, strengths, and activism of the community and the reality of life in Israel for the immigrants and for the second generation of Israeli- Ethiopians.
