The Jews of Ethiopia: Being Black, Jewish and Israeli

Hosted By: Qesher

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.

Naftali Aklum was born in Ethiopia in 1979 and his family was among the first to make Aliya to Israel via Sudan in what later became known as “Operation Moses.” He has taken an active role in educating the public about the Ethiopian Israeli community.

Host

Qesher

There are Jewish communities all around the globe with their own unique history, culture, places, and most of all, people and stories. All of them different, but sharing so much. The aim of Qesher is to connect these different Jewish traditions, not just to know of each other, but to learn about each other. We believe that there is great value in creating a deeper understanding within the Jewish world and exploring Jewish experiences and identities in all their diversity.
