From Ethiopia to Israel: My Story, Our Journey

Sunday, November 1st, 2020 (12:30 PM - 2:00 PM)

From our friends at Qesher: The Beta Israel, also known as Ethiopian Jews, lived for centuries in northern and northwestern Ethiopia, in more than 500 small villages spread over a wide territory. During the 19th and 20th centuries they suffered religious persecution. The Beta Israel made contact with other Jewish communities in the later 20th century, and most of the community immigrated to 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, traditions and reality. By engaging through a personal Aliyah story, we will learn about the identity, strengths, and activism of the community and their effort to realize the dream of reaching Jerusalem. We will also talk about the reality of life in Israel for the grandparents and parents' generation and for the second generation of Israeli- Ethiopians.
